Next obvious crack past Pocketful
Named both for the FA party and the state of our current governing body, this route is one pitch of interesting, challenging, sandstone grappling. Start in a physical flare off a ledge, battle yer way through mixed face and crack through a series os stimulating cruxey sections. Good edges abound but tend to face the wrong way. Expect to find 3 bolts along the way just as the gear runs out and the climbing becomes a bit more shall we say engaging... From the third bolt paddle yer way up to a two bolt anchor. One 70 m rope is all you need to return to the ground. Unsure if the grade is accurate let us know what you think!


Sooo probably more than you need but for the on sight FA singles in the teeney tiny, triples from .4ish-#2 and 1 or 2#3 (Camalot sizes). I was doubling some placements but I think you'd be happy with this rack. Also a handful of slings, three bolts at the top.
