Description

This first pitch of this climb heads up the multiple small and wandering cracks, then through a small bulge and into a corner. Get to the roof and then head right to a two bolt belay. From here head directly up a few faces moves, clip a bolt, and then jam your way out the stellar roof, with some tricky and pumpy moves pulling the lip.

Location

Route is located on the north face of the crag, scramble up the scree slope to as high as you can get, start under an overhang and take the most obvious line up. Can rappel with a single 60 m rope.

Protection

Gear to 3"(doubles in 2 and 3 "), stoppers, quickdraws and some runners, chain anchors

An interesting route with a quality (and exposed!) second pitch.

Pitch 1 is spooky just because of the poor rock quality. Felt like 5.10-

Pitch 2 was my first 5.11 trad lead, and after a few takes I got pretty spooked and got to practice some french freeing/aiding skills through the crux. So while I didn't free it, the rock was quality and seemed like it had some interesting moves. Trying to pull the lip into a decent stance is pretty burly and committed. Sep 1, 2017
