Description 

The bottom is unattractive but cleans up above the roof with some fun easy pockets, easy to protect.

At the top, the right hand ramp finish has a large sticker bush, quite possibly a raspberry or gooseberry bush, which makes that finish a bit prickly. The left hand finish avoids this bush.

From Rock and Ice Climbs in the Camden Hills, Townsend Rees 2010:
"Easy rock leads to a small overhang. Above, follow a left-leaning crack to the left edge of the face, then climb up the wide crack to an anchor on Broadway. Alternatively, finish by climbing left out of the wide crack, directly to the Pandora Freeway anchor. (90')"

Location 

Left of Harmonic Convergence on Sidewalk Ledge, Lower Charlotte's Face. Descend from anchors.

Protection 

Stoppers and cams. Anchors at the top on Broadway. Don't be seduced by the bolts on Harmonic Convergence, stay left.
