Derek Billings, Bart Bartlett
Sport route with possibilities of traditional protection also on 1st pitch
This route is currently the only line that tops out at the view point.
P1 starts to the right of the 'Lower Fraggle' routes and climbs up through the ominous looking flake to a large ledge. 6 bolts, 1 sling, grade 5b. 2 bolt anchor.
*Climbing is not technically difficult, but some of the moves cause difficulties with the orientation.
P2 starts up the face to the right of the chimney and then joins up with the left tending chimney to top out on the large block. 7 bolts, grade 5c. 2 bolt anchor. Awesome views.
Walk off the back is the easiest option and takes only a few minutes to go down and collect your gear at the bottom. Abseil/Rappel is another option but can be tough on your rope from the sharp rock. You can also escape to the right at the mid point ancho

Very interesting climbing, not always the prettiest, but very interesting. Good spacial awareness is necessary on pitch 1 when you are squeezing yourself through the flake. Awesome views at the top. Pitch two has some great moves on the face and a decent amount of exposure. Nicely bolted. Some loose rocks
