Good hand crack, single long pitch, watch out for rope drag. Top left leaning lay back section just before belay anchors to the left. One rappel off the left side, make sure that your rope touches the ground, might have to swing up hill for landing.


Cyanide Gully, scramble up the hill for 25 min after crossing the stream.


Gear to 3", extra thin to 1", nuts are a good idea. Fixed anchors at the top.

A good, but not great climb. Sustained through the middle. A ~180ft pitch. Felt a little harder than 5.9. There are a few awkward spots in the flaring crack system, and a couple loose and dirty spots. Still worth doing, but more of an adventurous style. A single 60m just reaches the ground from the rappel off the left side. Bring extra pieces up to 1". A few offsets could be useful in the flares.
