Description:

Enjoyable face and crack climbing. Follow the line of bolts to the left of Little Mac Crack. Use care on the low angle stuff as there is some ground fall potential. Lots of footwork. 60 m rope and a dozen quick draws. Can be top roped but you will have to rap down from the bolts at the top of the cliff to the bolted station approx 30ft.

4 out of 5 stars Vampire warm up in the Sun

Excellent climb to warm up on. Perfect for the morning when it see's some sun and your looking to get the blood moving for some tougher climbing.

5 out of 5 stars My time first leading at Mt. Macdonald

It was a well protected climb and I found it a nice place to learn to lead.
