Description

This leftmost climb of the Post Creek area can't actually be seen from the trailhead, as it's tucked into a cleft. From the first bench on the approach, it becomes visible. It offers several short easy pitches, and is a good introductory climb.
P1-A low angle slab to a tree belay. 110' WI2
P2-A 30' bulge of easy WI3.
P3-Two flow options of comparable difficulty and length. 80' WI3-

Location

Follow the drainage up to the climb, which is tucked in the big cleft several hundred meters left of the Three Sisters. Rap the route from trees.

Protection

Screws. A single 70m rope will get you down.

The approach to this climb will take between one and two hours from the car. It is hidden in the left hand drainage as you bushwhack up into the obvious gap in the cliff band left of the Sisters. Feb 18, 2017
