Overhanging hand crack located deep in a large chimney/gap to the far, far right of Dinkum. Start up the overhanging and pull yourself into a bombay squeeze chimney if you can fit. Lots of features for your feet.

5 out of 5 stars good!

used a #4, #2, and #9 valley giant in that order. the #6 is tipped out in the squeeze. and in the way so i would't recomend it.

i'd aggree its an 11 (for me at least) because of my hight, i had to invert twice. I was it was too narrow to get my waist through on the river side and had to move farther accross the roof before i could even think about getting my waist into it.

it was said before, "its like a tight .10 squeeze, if you can't, it's impossible." I couldn't fit and it was still posible by traversing the roof with half in the crack, i think that's where the 11a comes from...

good climb!!

1 out of 5 stars Batman crap why?

Easy hand crack leads to a really tight squeeze chimney. Nothing about this route even remotely approaches 5.11. You basically pull 5.9 hands to a 10b move that gets you into the squeeze. If you can fit, its like a tight .10 squeeze, if you can't, it's impossible.
