Description:

The Toe is a pinnacle that is halfway up the face on the west end that was original gained by the first few pitches of Unnamed but can be reached by a number of other routes that will give you more climbing. The route itself is interesting as being different from other routes, the first pitch has some good climbing, the second aside from a few moves has a neat walk behind the Toe. And the third pitch has 2 variations with the hand crack being the best.

Descent Options:

Double rope rappels and there is a mid point anchor on the face of the Toe 30m down.

3 out of 5 stars ok route

This is a neat route with character and position as well. Well worth a half day on yam with another route that day. There was a massive rockfall on the west end that took out about 100m of trail right around the Toe area so watch for loose rock, poor pins and bolts and lots of dirt.
