DescriptionOne of the longer routes at Buck Rock. Classic Buck rock experience. A mixture of spaced bolts on moderate ground to test your headspace, insecure bridging, harder moves with good protection and a bit of choss to finish. Great views from the top.
Pitch 1 (18) - 25m
Head up the groove with some delicate bridging around the 3rd/4th bolt. From here follow the spaced bolts to the belay.
Pitch 2 (20) - 25m
Technical crux but well protected. Overhangs.
Pitch 3 (18) - 30m
An alpine experience. Choss and spaced bolts, good for the headspace.
To descend abseil back down the line (or to any of the belays of nearby climbs).
