DescriptionThis is now the route that takes you highest up on the cliff. It has some really fun and exciting moves, great exposure, views and rock quality. It is basically an extension or second pitch to Abbey Normal 5.10c.
From the Abbey Normal anchors climb the very easy slab to the first bolt of Bridge (its about 20-25 feet to the bolt but maybe 5.1). From there climb up the corner under the roof, at the 3rd bolt make a really fun couple of moves out left and over the roof. Follow 3 more bolts up the low angle face to a tricky finish on small holds. Mantel the sloping ledge and take in the view, its amazing up there.
Be careful of a loose block above and left of the anchor.
I'd toss it down but i dont want to ruin the bolts on routes below.
ProtectionIf you are linking the 2 pitches:
-i suggest long runners on the first 2 bolts of Bridge (that makes it run really smooth).
-you will need a 70m rope to get back to the ground.
-or you can rap it with 2 ropes.
-or you can lower to Abbey's anchor and then from there to the ground.
-or what ever else you come up with.
