A very enjoyable pitch, perhaps the old 1/4" bolt will get replaced. A rap with a single 60m rope will get you back to the double bolt anchor at the end of P4 (I believe the variant to Star Trek starts at the end of P4, not P3, but may be wrong), so why not include this pitch on any "outing" to the Star Trek area!

To get to the Big Tree Ledge and the Upper Tier, climb the brown slab to the trees. 125 ft 5.4 R/X
