Description

This is a good line that is overlooked due to its proximity to more popular routes, like Rewritten and the Green Spur, which it sits between. Still, it is a good line that deserves more attention than it gets. It is a Journeyman's route, not a trade route, as it requires a steady mind and steady feet to ascend, on spicy protection.

Location

This climb starts in the left-facing corner just right of the start of Green Spur and continues up for some distance linking corners to corners until the major system stops. Continue on cracks and flakes past the roof of Green Spur which is on your left, and merge with P2 of that route.

Protection

A standard light rack including small cams and nuts plus some long slings.
