About The Foundry:

Steep climbing. Once again a hot crag best climbed in winter or cooler summer days. Has a cave in which you can do some boldering during rain.
Approach: About 350m from the river, a rock platform is found slightly down from the escarpment edge. MELTDOWN climbs this, so one can easily use the chains to rap down. There is a tricky scramble (13?) in the corner in the north side of this platform, but this is bad enough going up. Otherwise walk along another 60m where shuts will be found to rap to VOL LIBRE ("Vol L") and the extreme left edge of the ledge. This is 24m rap onto shuts so be careful and tie knots at the end of your ropes! Get all day sun.
