This is a single pitch climb on the tillite rock left of Good Plantains. The climbing is a bit weird on edges, slopers and pockets up to a small cave/ledge.


Start on a fairly steep face about 20 feet left of Good Plantains. Lower or rappel off.


5 bolts to a set of double ring anchors

This route was a lot better than I thought it would be. I enjoyed it. There are a couple really cool pockets between the first and second bolts. Kudos to Christian and Dave for putting up a good route on rock we've all walked right past a million times.

5 bolts actually, to double ring anchors. Lower half cleaner. Still a few loose blocks on the upper half.

I was surprised how clean it was. All my previous experience on the Tillite was pretty bad! Plus I love doing a mantel onto sand!
