daily planetAfter doing the approach pitches of Borderline, scramble (read roped easy pitch) up to the base of the beautiful corner. Bolted belay.
p1. A full 30m of stemming and laybacks with most of the climbing in the 5.11 range. The crux is way up high where you encounter a bolt and a bit of a mystery move. Clip the bolt and go for it, easy to the anchors. A 60m rope BARELY makes it down. 5.12a, but easy for the grade, a good first 5.12 gear route.
p2. Some old bolts and bigger crack climbing. A shorter 5.10 pitch, really fun, can be linked with p.1. I believe the unfinish P. Croft route branches out left somewhere off this route.
p3. A wild 5.11- undercling, rightward traverse. Very cool and a must do.
p4. Reachy bolted face climbing pitch that does not get done too much, so you might find it dirty. 5.12b
You can rap from any pitch, wires and cams to 2.5" for the first pitch and some 3-4" gear for the 2nd pitch. Double set is plenty.
