This route is to the right of Corner Pocket. Make a tricky start in short left-facing corner, then wander up the face on juggy knobs. Tied off knobs provide supplemental pro to a handful of bolts.

Near the end I traversed right to join Snooker. I'm not sure if this is the correct finish, but it looked like the easiest path.

Belay at a bolted anchor at the edge of the cliff. Then scramble down the 3rd class gully to the right, or rap to the ground with 2 ropes.


Some small gear to protect the start, then you just need quickdraws and some slings to tie off knobs.
