Not a very good shot! Glad Jason was kind of payin...


The steep slot high up beside "Tubby", visible from the tower at the base. Burley double arm chicken wing start in the roof, to narrowing and overhanging squeeze chimney. Then things get worse, as its still overhanging 5/6 to a fingerlock lip, and an awkward pull into the rest. From here, is another 25 feet of lovely low angle thin hand.


The change room, just to the right of "Tubby". Hike the main access trail from the base up the knotted rope. Keep trending up and left following tape, then fixed hand lines guide you to a flat ledge trending right to another hand line going up a wet corner. From here you can hang a right over to the base, or head up further to another hand line that drops you directly to the base of it.


You can get away with 1 #6 at the start, then it depends how deep you want to place. I placed 3's 4's and a 5 fairly deep to have them out of the way. A finger size is nice at the lip, then 2 #1's get you to the anchor.
