Description Suggest change

Sustained climbing up a nice friction slab, a tenuous seam and a long, exposed face. P1/2 and P3/4 are readily linked with a 60m rope. Rock quality on this part of the face is generally excellent.

P1 Climbs a great friction slab past 5 bolts. 80’ 5.9 or 5.10-

P2 Head straight up a much easier slab past 2 bolts, a fixed pin and a couple small gear placements. Just below a tree traverse left across a heather gully then up 8’ of 4th class choss to a fixed anchor. 115’ 5.7

P3 Juggy rock leads up and right into a nice long seam protected by a mix of gear and bolts. A great pitch. 90’ 5.9

P4 A short connector pitch climbs up then right past 4 bolts. 60’ H.6

P5 Climb straight up the face above on progressively harder face climbing past 9 bolts. The last 10’ will remind you that you’re still climbing off the Mountain Loop Highway. Need small cams or cordellete for belay. 140’ 5.9 or 5.10-

Location Suggest change

Start from a large tree 50’ left of True Grit.

Protection Suggest change

10 draws, couple small & medium stoppers, single set of cams tiny to 0.75 Camalot, maybe an extra finger size cam or two.
