About 75m from the west shoulder there is a break in steep wall that the first 20m climbs through some loose rock and blocks held with dirt, but the rest of the route for the most part is on good rock, this is also the starting route for the traverse route Its All McConnells Fault

3 out of 5 stars Descent route

This route is a few years old now, Havnt heard of a lot of people climbing it, theres some fixed gear on it and some of the belays are fixed although the crux pitch belay isn't although the pitch dosnt take a lot of big gear and theres a semi ok pin in the middle of the crux move. The route follows a real neat feature and some of the climbing is a bit spicy with the crux pitch having some great sequence both off the belay and the crux move. Definitely needs more people to check it out
