Description:

One of the first climbs that people see and do when they arrive at Frog. An obvious corner first up on the left as you walk down the access gully. Takes good gear and has some decent moves on it.

2 out of 5 stars Boooooo

I hated it. Really weird and awkward at times and requiring multiple uncomfortable rotations. After figuring out the moves I'd say the grade is fair (it's actually Aussie 13 which bleeds into 5.6 territory) but figuring them out I would say requires more experience than a beginning leader would have. Final call: Skip it.

3 out of 5 stars A good easy climb

Standard Frog corner with good gear... but it doesn't deserve three stars I reckon. I actually prefer Orchid Alley.
