The start and finish are where the 5.5 rating comes in.

Easy walk off.

Rapping can be awkward.

60m rope.


When entering the little alcove, it can be recognized easily as it is on the right, and is the largest formation present. Look for the dark patina'd rock and you're looking at the route.


five draws for the route, couple for the anchors.

The anchors are set back due to shitty rock. Bring longer cord/webbing to extend if planning on TR'ing.

This route is best finished by walking off.

You can rap it, but to do so will very possibly end up with the rope getting stuck on one of the flakes.
