Pitch 1: Fingers to hands to run-out slab (for me at least) to nice belay.

Pitch 2: Crack/face climbing to nice belay

The crux for me was mental, the slab. Easy climbing but if you go, you go and onto a small nut (that's all I could get) swinging sideways on a long swing. Weird pulling out onto face but then it's easy climbing.


Past Insidious crack follow the gully up right, then left and then just look for the obvious crack system up in the left hand corner. There is also a 5.6 right slanting that shoots off a bit up the start of the climb.


The protection is good in most spots. I used a #4 once for an anchor but really could have done without.

Led this last Sunday. I thought it was a good route with some interesting moves for a 5.7. I guess I would probably say it seemed a bit stiff for the grade. Jul 24, 2012

Fun route with some nice moves.
There are bolted anchors and chains at the top of P2 (to the right). You can rappel to the chains at the top of Anxiety attack, then another rappel to the base of the climb. A 70m rope just reaches the first rap, a 60m will require a bit of 3rd class down climbing. Aug 15, 2016

This route is pretty fun, but it's really 2 short-ish sections of 5.7 climbing (one on each pitch) with some 4th-class and low-fifth climbing filling the rest.First pitch is pretty exciting, nice hand crack getting up to a ledge and then you have to move out onto an unprotected face after getting some really small gear in. You're standing on the ledge while placing that gear though, so it's not super stressful. The face climbing has pretty good feet if you look for them, and it gets easy and low-angle pretty quick.

We approached by climbing "5.6 crack" and then walking up to the start of Mitigate. A good link-up. Jun 18, 2018

The hand crack at the beginning of p1 is great. Stepping out on to the slab was a little heady, but a good nut placement in the corner and the moves are all easy. Second pitch has a really fun finger crack. Rapped all the way to the chains on anxiety attack on my 60m and set up a tr on that! Great climb! Nov 17, 2018
