Lydia on the starting moves

Description 

This fun route follows a left-leaning crack into the obvious corner, which is followed to its top, and then up to a two bolt ring anchor.

Location 

Where the trail meets the cliff, the next right facing corner right of Jolly Green Giant.

Protection 

A single rack of cams up to #3, with doubles of green (for the entrance traverse) and optionally gold for the corner. One medium sized nut is also key. You'll be happiest if you save the #3 for the last piece. Two bolt ring anchor at the top. Can lower with a 60m rope.

In the initial crack leading to the corner, hang low to get the good footholds or it will feel considerably harder.
