Description

The climb begins with awkward, insecure moves above a rocky landing - breathe a sigh of relief after clipping your first piece - a fixed pin. The fingery crux is next, after which you clip a bolt and then continue up interesting face (don't pass the "hidden" fixed pin) and two more bolts before running it out slightly on easier ground to a bolted anchor.

All fixed protection on the route, but unless solid at the grade a toprope may be a good idea to fully enjoy the route. One star out of five.

Location

Located on the left side of the face just left of the notch between GoldenEye Spire and the rock this route is on. Much further right is Water Babies Crack a 5.5 wide crack which starts vertical and quickly kicks back to low angle slab.

Protection

3 bolts, 2 fixed pins, 2 bolt anchor/rap
