Description

This is a pure dry tooling route which will never have any ice on it. Although short, it is a superb addition and a highly worthy route for working on steep dry tooling skills.

Step up into chimney and then quickly move left onto the rock buttress. Climb up to the base of the right leaning crack in a corner. A slight move out right and then back up left establishes you in the overhung crack which takes great gear and has huge bucket hooks. Some long moves get you to the top.

Location

Ascend trail to base of Moss Ghyll. Look left and you will see a chimney/gully. Left of this gully is a short steep rock buttress with a steep right leaning diagonal crack (in a corner) ending near a tree.

Protection

Typical trad rack makes this G rated. Crack is pumpy but hooks are super secure and gear is all there if you can hang on.
