P6- This is the southern sub summit of Hayden. Find the right facing corner, climb up this to a small ledge clip the pin and pad to the summit. 5.6 45ft.
Walking off P3-P6 is an option, take the gully to the south. Alternatively you can rap each section, except the sub summit, which is a downclimb on the north east corner.
Located 200ft south from the main Iron Hayden Wall. Look for the obvious tower. Approach from the base of the Iron Hayden Wall hike to the right and up aiming for the right side of the tower formation in the gully to the south of Iron Hayden Wall. Some scrambling will be required to gain the large ledge below the tower.
