DescriptionThings are not as they seem...the steepest part of this route is surprisingly easy. The slabby upper reaches are surprisingly hard. All in all a fun addition to Derrydale.
The route follows steep face climbing on positive edges past the first two bolts--amazingly, solid edges appear wherever they are needed. Just below the third bolt, the angle drops back. From here, delicate slab climbing leads past two more bolts. There is a clear crux encounter just above the fourth bolt. If you escape right, it is possible to bypass the hardest moves. Finish to the left on the anchors of Mammoth Poaching.
