Description

A nice crack on a rock hillock bang in the middle of the city, barely 50 feet from the last hutment.

It can probably be climbed as a single pitch with some rope drag. We climbed it in two pitches, possibly because my partner Sunny who led the first pitch (the real pitch) wanted me to lead something, and hence split the climb.

The crux is the take off, the first 10 odd feet off the ground. Make a belay at about 2/3 rds way up. P1 would be 5.9+ or 5.10a.

P2 is about 25 feet long, 5.6-5.7, fun too, ending at a nice ledge at the top.

Descent is a bit tricky. I was lowered off and my partner downclimbed from the front-right face hugging the edge, but we later realized it would be easier to descend from the backside. That is probably how the local boys climbed this and planted a flag at the top.

Location

Park here. From here it is a 5 mins walk.

Protection

Single rack up to BD #3 should be fine. A few doubles may be helpful or at least have a long sling to make a natural anchor around a boulder at the top.
