A companion route to billy the kid. Start as for billy the kid but instead of clipping first bolt, move right along a narrow ramp, fixed pin and bolt, till good holds lead straight up to a two bolt belay. The second pitch is easier, heading up and slightly right to a two bolt belay. Mixed gear and a bolt or two. The third pitch is the business, climbing up and right from belay heading to the large roof over head. The crux is stemming around a small bulge to a crack, move awkwardly right to the semi hanging belay. The rock above this is rotten so the route ends here.


Rap route with single 70.


Gear and bolts up to #3 camalot, with offset nuts and cams being very useful.
