DescriptionReally fun new addition to the Papoose. As good as any of the other routes there in my opinion.
All the traverses are well protected for leader and follower.
P1 - Start up Centrefold and at the first bolt start traversing left. Skip the intermediate anchor and go all the way to the nice ledge below the chimney/slot pitch of Papoose One. Two bolts plus a variety of gear. I placed a #3 on the way to the last bolt, but a #4 could be placed a bit higher. Some fun "walk the plank" moves! I ended up approaching the last bolt from below rather than foot traversing, but I'm not sure it was the easy way.
P2 - Great pitch of intriguing face climbing. All bolted until the final short crack to the Hairpin anchor. The moves across the traverse are really cool.
P3 - Easy 5.7 hand crack to the right, past the Papoose One belay, up to a new belay above the small roof.
P4 - Enjoyable and well protected face climbing all the to the top. After the last bolt head up and trend right joining the finishing moves of Centrefold. Gear is required getting to the first bolt and a green camalot can be placed in a final horizontal at the top to protect the second and take the sting off the final Centrefold 5.7 runout.

LocationStart up Centrefolkd but traverse left after the first bolt.
We rapped Centrefold with a 70m in three raps straight down. A 60m route would NOT make the first rap, as a 70m just made it.
