A climber above the roof, contemplating the flakes...


Climb up the slab until you reach the small roof. Make the moves over the roof and on up to slab to an obvious flake to the right of an arete. Make a long reach and move left around the arete onto the slab.

A couple of delicate moves on the slab will give access to the anchors.


First bolted line of the crag


9 bolts, Rappel bolt and chain anchor

Are these listed backwards? Been a really long time since I've been up here, but seem to remember pretty distinctly this 9 being right of the two roof routes.
