Description 

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.

Location 

Rap route with single 70.

Protection 

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