DescriptionThis is a sweet route right off the road but only if you like things on the chunky side. It has a great wide crack corner on perfect chocolate, strenuous laybacking, and straight in thrutching on good stone. There are 2 pitches with no anchor at the top.
P1: Climb up through the wideness, passing several fixed anchors (retrobolts) and a wild imposing chimney roof, continue thrutching upwards to a good ledge with a two pin anchor.
P2: Crux! Climb more wideness, thrutch to the top. There are no anchors. Walk off down a descent gully or sling the skinny tree and go back the way you came.
