  • Description 

    On pitch 2 of Western Grebe, after clipping the 1st bolt, traverse right until you attain that lone bolt clip it, and then keep on climbing. It actually eases up with some nice patina (The Egg style), runout but easy.

    2 draws and 2 for the top.

    Fun variation, runnout but easy territory with lots of chickenheads. I clipped the mantle variation bolt, made that move, then went right and up from there skipping the first clip of the left-most route. seemed to make more sense that way.
