Description 

Crux is just below and left of a large obvious flake about half way up. Don't brake off the delicate flake. New bolts and anchor as of 2014 safe and fun again.

Location 

This route is the first route to the right of the bottom of the ramp in the middle of VD Wall. Also to the right of the arch and Followers Folly. Start below the first bolt located below a large ledge. 3 raps. to the ground with a 60m rope, 2 raps with a 70m, or walk to the right down the gully behind the wall.

Protection 

Quick draws and at least 6 runners to prevent rope drag.
8 or 9 brand new bolts (Dec. 2014) 2 bolt hanger also new. 2nd pitch 3 or 4 bolts to a bolted hanger.

The first pitch is 115' so a 60m rope will not make it to the ground you must down climb 20 feet or use a 70m rope to reach the ground, I rebolted it a few months ago.. second pitch is 40' long. has all new bolts as well. All new anchors.

Long zig zagging first pitch. To avoid serious rope drag bring long runners, a lot of them. Almost impossible with too much rope drag. The last bolt on the first pitch is in the chimney on the left. Put a four foot runner or double runner on the last bolt.
