Chris Basketfield on his way up the 1st pitch.

Description 

Three pitch route, with the first being by far the highest quality. Good steep face climbing for a few bolts followed by a few ledges with a good pocketed arete for the finish.

Location 

Down and left from where the main trail meets the face.

Protection 

Bolts for the first pitch to a two bolt anchor. The seond and third pitch take some gear.

Almost as fun as Stonemaster! The second pitch is short and dirty though it could clean with some traffic/gardening. It has three bolts and some opertunities for small gear. you can rap to the ground from the second pitch anchor with a 70m rope. The third pitch looks interesting but it only has two bolts and doesn't seem to finish. Does anyone have more info on the top pitch? Good looking rock up there on the last face.

There is a loose/hollow sounding pillar left of the bolt line, above the obvious chock-stone, between the 3-4th bolt. Avoid this. Staying with the bolt line directly in this area uses a side-pull and undercling/sidepull to gain an edge. This completely avoids the potentially dangerous area....the jugs on the pillar are tempting, but not worth the risk.
