Looking down P3


Wish I could give this a better rating, as it's a moderate multi-pitch up an amazing wall overlooking pastoral farmland, but alas...

The first pitch has two alternatives. The direct version looks better and should probably be posted as a separate entry by someone who does it. You can also traverse in from the cave, trending left along the slab, crossing Never-ending Story. Move straight up from here (crux) to the nasty-azz anchor, then continue left to another, then continue along to the ledge. Rope drag can be a pain.

Second pitch moves up the crack. Tricky if you're not a jammer. Once through this, stem out and up into the stacked blocks. Romp upwards to an anchor.

Third pitch continues along this ledge-system-weakness as it becomes more scrambly and broken. Step around the plant, past the chimney, and onto the slab. Climb this easily upwards, then pull gently over the chunks at the top to a ledge without much of a view.

The rappel from here requires some shenanigans traversing back to the right. Be sure to back it up with an autoblock. Second rappel is fairly straightforward, just stay right. Third rappel to the base of the direct start, then bushwack back to your packs.
