Description Suggest change

This fine route starts to the left of Virgin Springs and finishes at the Melvin's Wheel anchors on P1. The pitch starts with a gently committing seam with hard to place gear, until the 15ft level. Place a green Alien or two and follow 5 bolts on the face to the left. This climb is slightly easier than Bellyflop, but the climbing is more continuous. The face climbing is very enjoyable and goes on small edges. Almost three stars....

Location Suggest change

It is located directly below the Melvin's Wheel anchors on p1. You can either scramble some low fifth class rock from the start of Backflip to the base, or rap in from Mevlin's Wheel.

Protection Suggest change

Gear to #0.5 Camalot.
