DescriptionAn obscure route, mostly a slab traverse.
From the anchors atop the first pitch of Left Ski Track move left over easy ground past another set of double anchors and continue left and slightly down (the bolt up and left of the second set of double anchors is a different route) past two more bolts. Mostly easy climbing with a short crux on near non-existent hand holds. Consider protecting after the crux for your second. Afterwards head up to an obvious chimney (4th/5.0) that leads up to a set of anchors on your right.
Its about a 90 foot rap straight down to the second set of anchors that you past at the start. I do not believe that you can rap from these with a 60m, unless you know otherwise traverse right to the Ski Track anchors to rap.
