DescriptionA bouldery start will get you onto the plates that line the face, but you're not out of the bucket yet. Alternate jug hauling the face and thrutching in the wide crack until you come out to the ledge, where you can take a seat and consider your next move.
The anchor/descent is not ideal. You could scramble up the gully and try to find a tree to belay from, but I'm not sure what is available and getting down will be more of a chore. You can also traverse the ledge to the shiny new anchors two routes over and belay from there, but your follower might not be thrilled about the traverse.
Awkward route, but buckets of fun if you're into that kind of thing.
