Thoughtful moves on small footholds through the first half, then easier (and mossy) to the top.

Up through the underclinging small roof of the right side of overlap, and on up to the standing dead tree.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

FA first ascent? The listing of a Top-Rope first ascent does not imply that top-roping is the "appropriate" style for this route. If some party bolts this route and leads it and supplies a careful description of the size and metal-composition of the bolts and hangers - (by posting an Improve This Page or a Comment below) -- they wlll be given first-rank FA on this page. Also they can supply their own name for this climb (which is why currently this route has a "generic" name, awaiting installation of hardware).


Under the big standing dead tree at the top of this low cliff, there are two right-facing corners about 25 feet apart along the base of this cliff.
This route starts about 10 feet left from the right one of those two corners -- under the (higher) right side of the overlap, under (or slightly left) of a small roof 2 feet wide 5 inches deep.

Top anchor is 2-bolts-connected-with chain, with two carabiners.
. . (All bolts + upper hangers are 304 Stainless steel, 3/8 inch, but lower hanger, carabiners, chain, and quick-links are plated steel - installed in 2017.

Also a directional bolt to the left and a bit below from this anchor, which likely could help with top-roping the route "Cenral - Left Overlap".
. . (Bolt + hanger are 304 Stainless steel, 3/8 inch - installed in 2017).

There are also facultative anchors and bolts above this anchor which could be used to help protect and/or aid reaching anchors for this or other nearby routes from above. Or to help make the transition to a higher pitch on sector 8 Moynier - [ for more details see the sector 7 Lewis description page ].

No intermediate bolts for leading as of 2017.

In case anchor hardware is damaged or missing or otherwise inadequate, recommend to carry a few feet of 8mm climbing accessory cord and at least one quick-link.

Top-Roping: Perhaps could use the standing dead tree at the top of the cliff as anchor.

For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for this Lewis sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
