The podium is a unique route that is a great introduction to easy offwidth and bold chimney climbing. Climb up a short but easy offwidth to a low angle chimhey. Climb up into the chimney over chockstones to the flat floor of a wide chimney overhead. Belay by sitting down. No need to build an anchor. The second pitch is a 40ft unprotected chimney directly below a large chockstone. Climb up to the chockstone which accepts gear to protect the top out. Climb over the chockstone and up a low angle face to a sling belay around a tree. Rappel off the tree with a 60m rope to the anchors of The Man Who Fell To Earth/Only The Young Die Brave. Make a second rappel to the ground or scramble/downclimb the left side of the formation past Back In Black.
