Topo - all anchors will need tat or maillions leav...

Description 

Not a 3star route as in the guide.

Takes the nose and R eye of the Ogre. 1st pitch is choss gully solo to tree.

2nd pitch is the business and good fun. Easy slab past old bolt to cluster of poorish cams under 1st roof, this is probably the mental crux. Then slab to second roof and red camelot to hardish move past a bolt (replaced) to pull onto dyke proper. One more old bolt to 2bolt belay (replaced).. needs a 60m rope.

3rd pitch starts off good on the dyke, Then steps round R into a dirty gully to loose all exposure. Not particularly inspiring and feels pointlessly dangerous, with many good stances to drill, but no bolts and dirty/sandy. Not like a Tuolume R which is way awesome! a 5.10 leader might whitey :)
Only 3 bits of gear that will hold. Purple Camelot off the belay, RP3 at the Crux step right and a green alien.

4th pitch shite. Step L on chossy wall/chimney. Apparently a bolt somewhere??

Best to bail after pitch 2 IMO! Bolts are home made and rubbish! I replaced pitch 2+3 anchors with fixe ss 10mm and crux bolt pitch2.

UK E3+ 5c for those interested.

Protection 

I rebolted all anchors with fixe ss 3.5x 3/8ths and replaced the crux bolt on pitch 2 passing the 2nd roof to gain the dyke
