Description Suggest change

A good alternative to the often croweded Lowe Route, or, if you've already ticked the Lowe Route.

P1: Do the first pitch of the Lowe Route.

P2: Step up, and, at the shallow ledge, instead of heading up right as for the Lowe Route, step up left and follow several bolts pretty much straight up, passing a couple of fixed pins. Leave the crack moving right to another bolt and climb to a fixed belay anchor left of the left slanting overhanging corner above.

P3: Traverse to the right to pass the overhang, then step up and back left to a couple of pins and bolts to the summit ridge.

Put up on lead.

Fun route, plenty of air, and a nice line.

Location Suggest change

Route is located to the left of the Lowe Route, after doing the first pitch and short bit of the second pitch of that route.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack. Protection on the faces is mostly fixed.
