Description

Pitch 1) 5.9 Follow the steep and crack to a slightly awkward section, until the traverse. A good cam placement is available in the obvious hand sized crack before the traverse. Commit to the traverse and obtain an excellent belay ledge.

Pitch 2)5.8 Follow the face straight up the ramaining 20 feet. It is possible to link both pitches but rope drag will be a problem.

Protection

Standard rack to #3 Camalot

Pitch one is 10m and pitch two is 8m

No, it is definitely protectable. However, I have done this route twice, and skipped the second pitch on the second time. It's not super quality and you can bail through a large tunnel at the second belay ledge which takes you to the second tier of the roaches.

The route is rated at HVS 5a in British tech, which according to RockFax grade conversion found at rockfax.com/publications/gr… it 5.9-5.10a. May 17, 2016
