First Blood


In between Dead Soles and Kyle Hudie Route is an obvious thin flake and hand crack. Climb this crack for 25m to a rap anchor. Stop here, or move left past a bolt on a slab to the anchor for Dead Soles (31m).


Approach as for Dead Soles up the trail marked "Base" at the fork and then follow the fixed lines across the exposed ledges. First Blood and KH Route begin from the right-hand bolted anchor.

If using a 50m or 55m rope, rap to the intermediate anchor and from there to the ledge reaher than straight down. A 60m will just make it straight down from the Dead Soles anchor.


Gear to 1.5" (hand size)
