Description

A really sweet pitch that gets you amazing views!

Start between the tree and the chimney edging up the steep slab The best path starts behind the tree and moves right toward the bolt.. Climb this face past a few horizontal breaks, some offer protection. The crux happens around the second bolt, don't get sucked right at the crux ;) After this excitement Mantel on to the lower angle slab and pad your way up quite easily past 3 bolts to the anchor. There is one more spot for natural pro toward the top.

You can lower back to the ledge with a 60m rope... But it's close so be careful.

The anchor is at a comfy ledge so you can bring up your party and do a scramble (off to climbers right) or one more short easy pitch to the summit.

Location

This is an upper deck route. You can thrash up the gully to get there but I highly recommend doing Watching Me (5.7) to approach or doing View Finder (5.7) and banking left before the final headwall to gain the tree ledge.

From the tree ledge head in to the corner and look for a low bolt just left of the chimney. That is the start of this one.

Protection

5 bolts and a couple pieces of gear to ring anchors.
