Access Issue: Landslip early 2014 Details
The approach from the North end of the crag (described in all current guidebooks) suffered from a landslip in early 2014. An alternative approach from the South is described in the area page.
Description [Suggest Change]
There are different ways to climb this--to the left or right of the bolts. The layback on the right was considered the easier option, but the rock has become polished and smearing is not very reliable.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route is on the slab of the "Battleship Rock".
