Description:

Remember to look for the three dead tress and a large single spruce. This route is 160m at 5.7 but I would point out the year that it was climbed and how close Yam is. A 5.7 climber may find it rather diffcult. This is a good route for its grade and has some very intresting climbing though the roofs. The belay station top of pitch 2 is in need of a bolt or two to bring it to the standard of the other stations. The crux's are well protected but there are some run out areas.

4 out of 5 stars Slingsby's Overhangs

Nice route, don't need much gear for it though. It's straight forward, mostly following bolts and pitons. It's a little more work to get to the base of the climb relative to the rest of the routes, but it has the best view of them all when you top out.

Alright route, wall was pretty busy today so we made our way over here. Alright climb went up with 3 alpine draws and 5 qd, and a light rack. Second station is showing age we backed it up easily with a piece of gear. Nice view from the top. Enjoy!

Climb this route just for pitch 2 and 3. They are quite fun for the 5.7 grade. Cruxs are well protected but the rock is very high friction and mostly soild so for the run out areas you dont even notice. Some of the climbing is a litle tricky but only to know which way to go since you could climb almost anywhere. On the climb its self use the micro holds well. I do recomend this route and think that it desvers a star.
