Emma coming up pitch 1

Description 

First pitch is really fun rambling up a broken slab and into a wide groove that gradually narrows into a chimney. Stemming will get you past any of the sections without enormous holds. Tunnel underneath the stuck boulder and belay at the big, sloping ledge.

Second pitch starts on top of the boulder, traverses around to the outer face of the wall above, and then goes straight up. A harder variation is to boulder straight off the horizontal slot into the lichen above. Scramble up easy jugs to a ledge, then up an easy crack to the top.

Location 

Middle of the Organ Pipes, just right of the thin Piccolo and left of the rambly Diapason

Protection 

Standard light rack
