Description:

Start as for Friends, the continue through the overhang right of the pillar (kind of sketchy), and belay at the bolted station. One can follow this up with two more (dirty) pitches to the top. These can be linked to one 45-50m pitch, but it is a three pitch rap to get back down. If you climb the upper bits, gey your belayer to wear a helmet! Lots of loose rock.

Descent Options:

Rap or Lower on one 60m Rope.

4 out of 5 stars A Rarely Climbed Gem

Fun route with good gear on solid stone! Easy moves down below bring you to an overhanging crack and a solid lock or two enable you to crank into easier terrain above.

A second pitch above takes you 45-50m past an intermediate rap station and tops out the wall. Worth doing if you like moss!

4 out of 5 stars finger locking, yay!

didn't have the right sized cam for crux, so I used small nuts instead. Felt pretty secure still. Good route!
