It is a very challenging and rewarding route and yet another great route put up by John Gregory.

This is a great mixed sport and trad route. The hardest portion of the route is bolted. The last section is pretty easy trad climbing for about 10meters to the abseil anchors.

The first portion, the approach to the first bolt is on very sharp rock. Once you get to the top of the block is where you will find the first bolt, follow the crack up. The route up the crack is mostly smooth. There isn't many places for great foot placement, most of the foot holds are rather smooth but there are a few good spots for foot jams. The bolted portion of the route is full fist jams and awkward moves.


This is a mixed sport and trad route. The first portion of the route has new bolts. The last bolt has abseil anchors. The rest of the crack can be trad climbed. There are also abseil anchors at the very top pf the route.
