A nice pitch that reaches a big ledge cutting across the whole face that is useful in descent of many longer routes on the crag. It's located on the left end of the big slabby and attractive west face, just before some harsh looking roofs. The accompanying photo will help identify the start.
Climb cracks and corners to some easier ground. Move left and up towards a shallow dihedral, then ascend this feature to the big ledge. Alot of fun.


Check out the Description portion for info on Location.
Once on the ledge, follow it up and right the far end, about a rope length, where a super block is well slung for a rap to the ground. It can be done in two raps with a single line -- there's an established anchor part way down -- or make it to the ground with two ropes.
Pick another route....


A standard granite free rack is sufficient. Small stoppers are handy on SCB. The pro is good.
