Description Suggest change

This route combines a lot of different styles in one long pitch to the Peregrine roof, and it's all free at only 5.11. The climbing up high (and out of sight from ground) is excellent and makes this route very worthwhile.

Start as far right as you can go before heading up the hill/gully.

Climb a short section of dirty rock to a bolt. Moderate moves up and slightly right get you to a moderate face with great hidden gear. Climb the face to merge directly into the left-facing corner of "Chieftans". Follow this cool, albeit dirty and awkward corner up to a roof (strenuous here). "Chieftans" moves left along flakes, but you'll want to pull straight through roof and into the hanging corner. Clip a bolt above the roof (new) before coming out of the chimney. Also, be sure to sling your last couple of pieces in the chimney long.

Once in the hanging corner, climb past another bolt to gain the very techy face above. The face is protected by 4 more bolts and two small cams (#0-1 TCU). Follow amazing crimps past 4 more bolts and 2 small cams (#0 to 1 TCU) to a bolted belay at the Peregrine Roof.

Bring extra slings for the lower half of the route.

Rap with one 70m rope but watch ends. Or rap down and left to Guillotine anchors.
