Mollie on Pitch 2 of Fish and Clips, after the cru...

Description 

A good technical route with lots of edging and sidepulls. Dead vertical and crimpy, this is the opposite of a jug-haul.
Climb up the slightly slabby 5.10a starting pitch to a belay at 1/2 rope (100') and have a look up the pitch above. This will be the technical crux. Start up P2 and continue up increasingly difficult moves to reach the crux section, a flay grey wall with 20' of thinner moves on smaller feet and side-pulls. Crimp down through the crux and ride out the pump to the anchors. P3 offers additional moderate climbing at 5.9.

Location 

This route is the next sport route uphill from WIll the Wolf Survive, and can be easily found by taking the scree-ish path uphill for 70 meters to where it once again reaches out of the gully and in towards the wall.
There you will find 2 starts Fish and Clips on the right, or the 5.9 alternate starting pitch to the left ("Whistle and Fish").

Protection 

A dozen or more draws.
