Description

This route sits at the edge of a pinnacle and follows up an arete to a striking overhung ledge where the route ends. Unlike many escarpment "5.9s" this rating on this route is fair. The crux of this route is pulling onto the face just below the anchors. With both a good rest before the crux move, and the bolt line directing your falls out into space, this is a great lead for new climbers.

The rock on this climb can stay wet longer than others in the area which is of particular concern as this can make the final moves extremely insecure.

As a final note, the draw line on this route makes cleaning on the way down difficult (particularly if you rappel). It is best to have a second clean on their way up.

Location

This route is roughly 50m from the down climb to the climber`s left. It sits on the edge of the pinnacle and can easily be identified with the striking overhung finish.

Lower or rap off the anchors to get down.

Protection

This route is tightly bolted all the way up. There are 7 bolts plus the anchors (if memory serves) so you will need 9 draws. Most climbers should be able to reach the first bolt from the ground.
