Description 

Layback the most distinctive feature at the crag. A fun excurion.

Step off the right side of a small boulder on the ground and proceed up a pocketed face to a short overhanging section. Past this, climb flakes/blocks to the wide crack. There isn't pro at the base of this (unless you brought your Big Bros??) but you can get a medium cam in way off to the left at the top. Above this climb an offwidth and fist crack to a gear belay above.

Ab from the burly tat on the tree above Shagrat.

Location 

Pretty much straight down from the obvious wide crack up high- start at a small boulder in front of the wall.

Protection 

Mostly medium to large hexes and cams though smaller gear is useful at the start
