Description:

Aqua Knobby is a short, high quality route on the left side of Pywiack Dome. Pitch 2 has a semi-runout section above a bolt, but this should be no problem if you are comfortable on slab. The upper half of the route follows a crack that gets progressively easier towards the top. Fun and Fast!

4 out of 5 stars little hard to spot

P1 was short and runout. Then we linked p2&p3 w a 70m rope, and then finished on the short p4. Route was completely dry. Mental crux was the traverse from the bolt to the crack on the right. Must be comfortable w runouts if you want to lead this one.
