Description:

hard core old school.. get the picture. Crux is an X rated 11a pitch actually the crux is 5.11a but has reasonably well protected climbing, however there is lots of sustained 5.9 and 5.10 that is X rated. Last pitch is 5.9 45m and no pro but has good rock overall.

Descent Options:

Walk off and then rappel the Bonanza Descent Gully 3 X 25m rappels.

5 out of 5 stars second time up this climb

This route is "Old School" is run-out in several section particularly the 5.10 pitches. You need good route finding ability and you have to be competent at the grades stated, very competent! That said this is a very worthwhile adventure route and is highly recommended if this is your cup of tea.
