DescriptionA bit of mid-route bushwhacking opens the door to some fine thin face climbing from a very scenic and exposed ledge.
Start in T-Crack and veer right into an alcove with a bush hanging from it. Now, throw a piece in the corner and start tree-hugging (keep your feet on the lower ledge) to afford a three bolt anchor (This whole route could be done in one 60M rope length, but is not recommended due to rope drag and communication issues).
Pitch two is a 3-bolt thin, near-vertical face with a plethora of hold types; dime edges, mono-digits, sharp incuts and oyster nubbins. Aesthetic and powerful climbing awaits. And conveniently, the cruxes are located with the bolts about waist high. After the third clip, make sure you head out right for full value.
