Description Suggest change

This route is on the formation just left of Steinfell's Dome when viewed from the parking area. It climbs the spine facing the road in 4 pitches. Find the trail that leads towards Steinfell's, and traverse leftwards on trail to reach this subsidiary formation (called Jackson's Thumb).

The climbing is fun, low angled, and very well protected. If you are a little low on quickdraws, there are some spots where you can unclip a bolt at your knees after reaching for the next clip. The view of the City from the top is great.

One rope is all that is necessary, and the descent is very easy. Two one-rope raps (we had a 60m, not sure if a shorter rope would work?) from fixed stations get you to a major gully. From here, an easy trail returns you to the base.

Protection Suggest change

Lots and lots of bolts. I think there may be up to 18 bolts per pitch.
