DescriptionThis route climbs the right side of the west face of the Obelisk (it's the dashed line in the picture). A nice fat bolt has taken the place of a nest of knifeblades which once protected the crux. The start is a bit bouldery, with an unprotected mantel onto a sloping ledge, but it's not too hard.
The route ends with typical grainy Josh slab, and I was happy I took the time to sling the chickenhead above the 2nd bolt.
Short route, fun moves - definitely worth doing.
