Traverse left under the arch/roof by underclinging a narrowing finger crack with smears and edges for the feet. Surmount the overhang at its end and climb the easier face up and left to belay at a tree with rappel slings. Listed as a TR in the guide, this can easily be led on gear.


Start at the same spot as for Bullocks, just left of the Flatman Chimney.


thin cams and nuts for the traverse, a few medium size pieces for the face above

This is a terrific TR to toss in before pulling your cord from the rap off the other area climbs. There is a mammoth jug right at the keep that in mind as you shuffle your tips across this .10d classic undercling. The pro is #2 TCU size and smaller, and it is a bit tricky to get in while hoisting the undercling moves...more fun as a TR....and I'd give it 2 1/2 stars for what it is: sweet long undercling that begs for the TR, because it's just darn convenient!
