Description 

WHEN DOVES COO 5.8 ** (2 pitch) M
P1 – 5.7 * 70’ M (1b) - Start as for Watermark but traverse right along the main horizontal crack above the roof to the two ring anchor (semi-hanging belay).

P2 – 5.8 ** 60’ M (4b) - Traverse right past the main crack and then climb up to the right arête to belay at the single bolt anchor (with gear) right of the current bush. Very interesting climbing with nice exposure.

Location 

On the large West Face

Protection 

Mixed, some bolts with a wide range of cams needed.
