Requires a 70M rope to top rope/lower off (or two ropes)


To gain the big ledge, work up the central part of the wall clipping a couple bolts (back cleaning the first bolt will help with rope drag). From the ledge, Shiny Yellow Crane begins in the shallow right facing corner on the left side of the wall.


16 bolts to a two bolt anchor w rap rings

I got on this again this weekend. In spite of some ledgey shenanigans down low I'd say it's one of the 5 best sport routes of the grade I've been on in WA. One long sling and a bit of back-cleaning are enough to get past the shenanigans and into the fun stuff. May 7, 2017
