I don’t know if that’s a typo, or the Kiwi way of spelling Existential, but I’ll leave it as such unless I hear otherwise. Yet another straightforward pocket-pulling route, similar to its neighbors, however this one requires a bit more technical work at the start and the steep section is a little steeper at the top. If you use the finger crack to the right to pull the final steep section it’d probably go at a letter-grade or two easier, but all the holds are there to do it without.


Left of Streetwise, third left from the crack next to the fence.


6 bolts and an anchor.
