Description 

Clipping the second bolt will be critical for safety. If you miss it, you will likely land in a tree or perhaps make ground fall. Tough to see how you miss the tree, though.

Location 

First route on the wall when coming from Rose Hill wall.

Protection 

Bolts, chains.

Layback a crack to obtain the high first bolt, being mindful of the nearby tree. From here easily clip the second bolt prior to committing to the face. Meander through a series of broken strenuous moves before finally pulling a two foot roof to reach the chains

Contrary to its appearance and length, I found this route to be surprisingly enjoyable with unique, challenging moves on solid rock.

5 bolts to chains.
