Getting ready to launch in to the hard stuff tori...

Description 

Nice bouldery climbing on very solid rock. Being a relatively short climb with a reasonable start and easy finish, it's not too hard to figure out that there are a few rugged moves in the middle bit.

Start on a vertical wall with decent holds angling up and Right to a pretty obvious kneebar (I clipped from the kneebar). From here zig left along the roof before zagging up and right to get around the lip of the roof. As so often is the case establishing yourself on the slab above the roof is still a task despite ample hand holds. Once your feet are on the slab you should be in the clear barring any serious mistakes.

Some moves may be reachy for shorter climbers.

Location 

This is the 3rd bolted route from the left end of the cliff. One route to the left of Buffalo Soldier.

Protection 

5 bolts to Ram horn (pig tail) anchors.
