Description

OK after 10 years I finally got around to doing a direct start to this route. No more dealing with the thorn tree of death in the gully for the throw away first pitch. It can now at long last be done as one pitch.
Sustained and tricky climbing past three bolts get you to the ledge.
If you climb up to the first bolt what was the second pitch then down climb and unclip from the anchor rope drag is no issue.

Location

Climbs the short headwall underneath the ledge on Four crows.

14 bolt plus 2 for the chains if you clip the first anchor. I didn't. Also good to extend the next one to keep drag down ( I didn't do this. Drag was manageable) although it makes for a bit of a ledge fall scenario. Pretty easy to the next one though. Thanx for the hard work guys Jan 21, 2015
