DescriptionA steady start up to the main bulge gets the blood flowing for a technical and powerful sequence through the steep ground. The holds all seem to face the wrong way, and the crux move is a long reach off and undercling to a jug. From here, bolt 4 could be clipped high, but it's better to make another move to more good holds on the right before clipping. Easier climbing, but still with interest, leads to the top.
A reliable winter route, drying quickly and not taking too much seepage, even staying dry (in the lower section) after light rain!
LocationAfter the cave, before the leftwards-trending crack of "Fossil", this is the line of bolts taking the bulge directly.
