Mandy Chaney stylin' her way up Pebbly Poo


Boulder up the initial face to the ledge and protect. Step up and clip the bolt and then pull the reachy crux.

Enjoy the face above to a great ledge where you can build an anchor to bring up the second, set up a TR or walk off right.

You can continue up a steep crack to the summit of the pinnacle, but few people do so. There are bolt anchors near the summit.


From the terminus of the approach trail walk around the corner to the left. Begin on the main wall directly under the bolt.


Smaller cams and tri-cams. There is one bolt at the crux. Belay from gear in a horizontal on the big ledge or fomr bolts on the summit. You can scramble up to either anchor set up from the backside to top rope without leading.

Continue to the very top via a crack from the large ledge, this adds an exciting finish. As of 5/08, there is now a new cordelette(mine), backed up by 2 manky slings salvaged from previous crappy anchors that people made to get off the block. There's also 2 quick links to thread the rope through, the anchor bolts appear to be in good condition.

Wow, who knew there was a 6080ft bigwall in the middle of the gorge. Might want to change that eh.

This route was updated with 5-piece bolts and chains, July 2014. Slings and Cordalette are no longer necessary for a clean rope pull. It is also possible to scramble off the back of the boulder.
