Climb an easy wall to a high first bolt and rest at about 5m (stick-clip unnecessary, the climbing is easy and positive). Warm-up over, continue up into the power-endurance crux sequence.

Move up from a good right hand sidepull to various crappy holds for the left, then make a big move to a good right hand. Clip bolt 3 high from here, move up to gain a left hand pinch and rock up to gain a sidepull/undercling right hand. A powerful crossover gains a good left hand above the bulge, from which a technical sequence gets you established at a good jug and bolt 5. Final easy moves get to the lower-off on the left, shared with Pearl Harbour.

An alternative is to move rightwards from bolt 4 or 5 to an independent lower-off, which doesn't add to the difficulty.


The first line of bolts to the right of the common start of Chepito and Pearl Harbour, beneath the right hand end of the central bulge.


5 bolts, 2-bolt anchor

Fully re-bolted with Titan Climbing Eterna titanium resin bolts and Hilti RE500 epoxy in February 2015.

Original Petzl Collinox bolts remain but Portland staples replaced by titanium hardware (including the lower off).

Note the route does not finish at the Pearl Harbour anchor as described.
