Description:

Easy route with some exposure and a chimney finish. Starts off to the left and curves round to a small slab section directly below the chimney. Good holds throughout with a tree at the top to anchor from.

4 out of 5 stars Wonky Old Pitons

Little bit concerned about the pitons here. Plenty of them, fixed and rusting, but not very confidence building. This route could do with being bolted. Someone has started bolting the beginnings of a more direct route, but the old pitons need replacing with bolts as well. The Chimney section has a good view and a thrilling turn out at the end. Good place for one of the smallest Big bro's or a large hex if you don't trust the rusty nails.
