This short route packs a lot of punch for its length. The spacing of the bolts, while not runout, certainly has most climbers feeling nervous. Start just after leaving the gully on the traverse across the face. Climb straight up, over a couple of small overlaps and past four newer bolts to the anchors (crux at final bolt).


1st obvious route on the main face after descending all the way to the bottom of the gully. Start under a tree


bolts x4

im not sure if there is any links on the 2 bolted anchor. Webbing might be needed
