Description

Start by face climbing up around a wide crack which widens to the point where you can get inside.

Once you are inside the crack there are lots of big holds to make this chimney very easy. There is also a crack that takes regular size gear.

Near the top the chimney widens and the rock becomes smoother and less eroded. Keep chimneying through this and exit to the left. (Towards the river)

Location

Behind and right "Throbbing Gristle"

Protection

Gear to 3" (Could use big bro's if you really, really wanted to)
Slings for the 2 chockstones.

Build Anchor on top and walk off or rap "Bobs Your Uncle"

Learn from my mistakes, when you clean the route rap and exit the chimney to climbers left (not the way you came in). Otherwise, when you pull the rope it may get stuck around one of the chockstones, which turns your afternoon into a real gong show. Apr 3, 2019
