Description 

I climbed this one today at last and I must say that it was dirty but i rapped in to give it a quick cleaning and realized quickly that if it wasn't wet 11 months of the year this would be quite a nice route.

between the 2 sport routes there is a left angling crack with a bolt low down (the book said 2 bolts but there is just one). The crack is choked with moss and dirt and is normally really wet.

if you find it dry, and want to have a go. Give it a quick brush down then. follow a wandering path of nice crimps past the bolt and surprisingly decent gear you can't see from below.


Location 

Between the 2 sport routes.

Protection 

Small gear and a few draws, anchor at the trees above.

I couldn't find the other bolt either. Nor could I find a good reason to give this one a go. Yuck!
