5 out of 5 stars Beeautiful Pitch

An absolutely beautiful pitch that sees little to no traffic. There is a very wide run-out through the middle of the pitch, but the climbing is a very reasonable 5.nothing. The bottom section can be quite dirty after a shower, and this will make your life hell on the traverse shortly after the beginning corner. The crux comes at the top, and is quite tasty. The bolts were looking quite manky during my ascent.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

The 12b of choice on the Pet. The route has two distinct crux sections. The first crux is a real headache if there has been any rainfall; the sloping footholds become slick with dirt washed over the cliff. Don't worry about the run-out middle section; it is VERY easy. The last crux before the top is deceptive. My instinct was to go right, and up, but stay left if anything; it is much easier that way. In my day the bolts were beginning to show their age. God knows what they are like today.
