LocationLeft side of Trundle East face, below the Pocket Protector belay. Find the cracks with bright green lichen.
DescriptionA long, fun adventure pitch with a cool overhanging crack and a great view from the top of the tower. Below the ledge of Pocket Protector, climb up to the double cracks that lead to the overhang. Locks and jugs out the roof and over the lip into the pod rest. Continue up the right facing crack above (optional belay), then make your way left into the easy crack system of the original route. Wise use of runners will help with drag. Follow this to a bolted belay station next to a bush; may need new webbing.
Rap to the base with a 70M, or to Pocket Protector's anchors with a 60M.
(Please note that the rock quality rapidly deteriorates higher above the upper ledge. The summit block of the tower is not actually attached to anything solid. It is not recommended to attempt to gain the true summit.)
