Trying to rest after the hanging traverse.

  • Description 

    Begin at the wide crack on the wall behind the Brilliant Pebble. Tunnel into the wall to place a big cam in a horizontal, then return to the light and scum through the wide bit on TR. Enjoy easy climbing on okay rock up to the first roof. Bypass this to the right and then rail out the hanging face, clipping two widely spaced bolts. Pull a smaller roof over gear to a good rest on a ledge. Tech through through the vertical crux above past two more bolts staying mindful of that big ledge.

    Rope drag from the big roof makes clipping in the high crux quite challenging, with a ledge waiting below. If you were to drag a second rope for to the top bit, the route might just feel more like the 5.11 that it probably is.


    Follow the faint trail from the backside of the pebble up the hill to the wall behind.


    Gear to 3.5" plus 4 bolts and one 6" cam. Lower from the fixed anchors with a 60m, but don't expect much rope left over.
