Description Suggest change

Things 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.

Location Suggest change

The route begins about 15 feet to the right of the start of Mammoth Poaching.
