Description [Suggest Change]
A short, hard route at the back end of the corridor. This climb has interesting and tenuous moves on an arete of medium-to-soft (for mentmore!) rock. Well-bolted, safe lead, but clipping the 3rd bolt is hard. Be careful to make the first clip...the route starts on top of a boulder pile, and a tumble before clipping would be nasty. Rarely climbed, so the rock hasn't been cleaned up and is still suspect.
Location [Suggest Change]
Find this one at the far end of the corridor, around the bend at the back, where the corridor re-emerges from behind the Monolith. Check Scott Halliday's route map on the New Side front page: this route is #8, "Project." Look for a sharp arete with some jumbled boulders at the bottom, and an obvious line of bolts. It's the only route in the area.
Protection [Suggest Change]
4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Rapping and pulling your ropes would probably be difficult. Walk off by scrambling uphill to safe ground, then heading left to the end of the cliffs.
