Description Suggest change

This route starts as an obvious thin-hands crack on the south-west overhang of Supremacy Rock. The crack leans right and overhangs significantly. The key to this climb is footwork, unless you have small hands (I do) which make the climb easier. On my first attempt I sliced the back of one hand open, however, and only completed the route after coming down and taping up. I recommend taping up for your first go at it.

Protection Suggest change

Fingers to thin-hands. This can be led on stoppers alone, but will be pumpy without cams. You hang out longer trying to place good stoppers.

The route can be TR'd from fixed anchors and gear if you walk up the rock from behind, to the East end of the South side of the rock. There would be a large swing potential if you fall low, but it seems to be quite safe.
