The crack line on the far right. Harder than its neighbour, Veils of Illusion.


The anchor is directly above Veils of Illusion. Walk off possible.

Worth doing if you're in the area. Getting off the ground is a boulder move which is harder than it looks. Finish up on enjoyable thin-hands. Gear anchor then walk off either side.

I didn't think about building a gear anchor, I just kept climbing until I got to the bolts above Veiled Illusion. I recommend this unless you're doing a big top-roping session, in which case a gear anchor directly over the route may make more sense.
