Sweet. Awesome steep well protected climbing heading up and left through a roof, then straight up to the anchors.


This is the left most route in the Down Under area, right before the walkdown area. It is the steep orange face.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. The left bolt in the roof is has a loose hanger and is unneccessary as it is 6 inches away from the right bolt.

Route is missing a hanger on the second bolt. It can easily be protected lower with a #1 BD cam. The third bolt looked a little sketch so it was also backed up (easily) with #3 just below it. There is a very crucial hold (looks like a horn) in the middle of the overhang. It flexes, but it is usable. Tread lightly. Great climb!

Second bolt still missing hanger. The roof has two bolts, both hangers spin but bolt to the right isn't rusted and looks fairly new. Horn mentioned in previous comment is still there. I didn't notice any "flexing" so it might be slightly smaller than it once was; still a jug. Would still tread lightly as Daniel said. Worth a lap!
