Description:

This climb is near the top of the Green gully. The best access to the first belay is to ascend to the very top of the gullly, then hike up to the left on the mossy ledges and traverse into the belay on grass walkways. The first pitch goes super easy 5.7 up a broken crack system, with a lot of protection options. Two bolt anchor under a small roof after 20Meters of 5.7. The second pitch exits the belay to the left then right along a horizontal crack system. Climb up to another roof traversing right, until another vertical crack. Climb direct over the lip to the anchor under a huge roof. The second pitch is much harder than the first.

Descent Options:

Double rope rappel.

4 out of 5 stars First pitch is great for beginners, second is tricky!

The first pitch would be a great beginner lead. The second pitch necessitates runners for the rope drag. The crux is definitely under the roof on the traverse. Handholds are solid, but feet are scarce through this traverse section.
