Description:

A very fun trad route with the first three pitches rated between 5.7 and 5.8. The last pitch, rated 5.9, is the most fun of them all ending with a huge roof just before you top out. The approach is somewhat lengthy (perhaps an hour from the parking lot) but you get rewarded as being one of the few parties in the crag. In fact when we did it, on warm weekend in the beginning of September, we were the only party in the crag. The climb is facing West so it is best to start climbing just before noon, so that you get a lots of sunshine throughout the day.

Descent Options:

Rappel anchors are located about 20 meters south of the top anchor. 2x60 meters ropes are recommended for the rappel.

4 out of 5 stars Macadamia

Really fun, accept that I seconded it with a smashed pinky after a scree incident on the approach. Last move was really fun, but I fell as the bandage on my hand came off as I grabbed the final jug. Oh well makes a good story.
