At the time, I was working in Papua New Guinea, and always seemed to be hungry and up for eating. Many of the friends from that time would often comment that it was time for me to "Feed the Worm". That was usually a good idea, I would think!

Pitch #1: Climb a finger crack to a roof and some aid. Pass some sloping holds on the spur passing several bolts to the top of the mesa and a two-bolt belay.
5.5, A2, 32m.

Rappel the route.


From the maintainence garage, walk a short distance to the north where a distinctive buttress on the white colored sandstone leads to the top of the mesa.


QDs for bolts and small assortment of pitons.
