Description

The Goss guidebook warns that this line is sharp, but if you're solid at the grade, use your feet, and don't thrash about you will enjoy some excellent tufa flowstone and fun movement. This climbs like a slab with great friction for the feet, several good pockets and some prickly edges that you never need to bear down on. The biggest threat is grating your knuckles while clipping around a few protruding features.

Location

Second route from the right end of the cliff.

Protection

5 bolts, shares chain anchor with Sega to the right.

Very sharp! Extremely rough stone featuring tiny little teeth or "pricklers". Best to wear long pants and don't even think about falling. May 17, 2017
