top out!

Description 

OW/squeeze chimney with a short stemming traverse at the top. With some OW technique this will go down easily then you'll finish 45/50 feet above the crevasse, straddle either side and pull around right for the top out.

Location 

The Gandalf Cave is located on the inside of The Upper Cliff.

Protection 

Currently no fixed gear or bolts, no way to top rope either, a solo top rope can be set up or it can be free soloed. it will take big bro's and maybe a BD 5 &/or 6. The moves are all very secure and aside from the stemming exit (5.4ish) it would be unlikely to fall. (use your own judgement a fall here would be awful with no easy way for help to get you out)
