DescriptionVaried climbing that weaves its way from the base to the top of Buck Rock. Some run out sections, so be solid for the grade.
P1 (19) - 35m
Start traversing left up the rata vine covered ledge. Don't let this put you off, it gets much better! From here weave your way up the face, not paying too much attention to how far above your last bolt you are! If you have decent footwork you will be fine. When you get to some anchors, belay off the ones to the lower left.
P2 (15) - 30m
Maybe a little hard for the grade, but still a reasonably easy pitch. From the belay head left and up for the first 2 bolts. From here head even further left following the weakness to the next bolt (dont head straight up to the bolts in the overhang above, unless you want to climb a 22!). Head up the grove/weakness then traverse back to the right. Once again be careful to stay on route and not stray into the 22. Keep traversing to the right following the weakness before heading straight up (careful of a few loose blocks) before finishing at a double chain belay. If possible extend your anchor to the lower ledge to the right to reduce rope drag.
Descend by abseiling down to anchors at the top of pitch 1 (or any nearby anchors), then abseiling a second time to the ground.
