The holds are a little difficult to find but the technical difficult is moderate.


The route just right of Ooze Move.


Bolts (a couple of longer slings useful) to chain anchors.

Really nice route. Going through the final overhangs is exciting. Poorly placed anchor though.

Some serious fall potential if leading at your limit, but great exposure for an 8!

Not a lead for a 5.8 climber! Awkward, but not necessarily dangerous bolt placement, especially at the anchors (bring a trad draw for the penultimate bolt); slightly run out for the grade. Top roping off of the anchor is not a good idea: one would fall and swing into the road! Best to top-belay the second, as cleaning the gear on rappel would also be a nightmare.

What you get for putting up with this is a really cool tortuous route with neat holds that snakes up an arete and through a notch. Good fun for a > 5.8 leader!
