  • Description 

    Wander up a drippy slab and through some incredibly featured rock on this wicked climb. The difficulty slowly increases as you head towards the chains, ending with a crux just below the finish. Underclings, sidepulls, and very few flat holds make this an interesting and engaging pitch. Solid for the grade and a great power endurance test-piece.

    Older topos list this route ending up and right at an anchor in the roof - recently the trend has been to clip the chain draw from the jug, before the start of 'Crown of Thorns' and call it good.

    Location 

    The first route on the right side of the cave.
