Description Suggest change

This is a completely different start and adds about 70' of variation to the line. Head up the slightly overhanging face towards a small bush on the short first section, utilizing a nice, deep pocket at about chest level. Above, follow intermittent cracks up to the blocky arete, and follow this up and slightly leftward into a short hand crack. This links into Children of the Ormes (C.O.T.O.) above, so there is one last place for a Metolius 8 or similar in a parallel crack well below your feet before solving the easy but overhanging runout traverse (PG-13) to the small notch up on the right to top out.

Location Suggest change

Start right of C.O.T.O. on the pocket and blocky overhanging face below a small bush at about 20' above you. See the picture.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack. A purple 8 Metolius or similar is crucial for making the runout traverse above it sane for those new to the grade. Build your own anchors. A 70m will just make it.

Walk off to the south.
