The first two bolts at the crux bulge.

  • Description 

    This route is entertaining for how short it is. The crux comes above the second bolt where you pull on small holds onto the slab above. The climbing is much easier after you get over the crux bulge.


    This is the route furthest to the east (right side when facing the crag) on the crag. It starts at a small overhang below a stance with a good jug from which the first bolt can be clipped. This is the only place at the crag where the ground is somewhat flat at the start. You descend from a two bolt anchor at the top.


    4 bolts to a two bolt anchor. There are no rings for lowering off the bolts at the top. It could use some quicklinks.
