Description:

Lies below Surprising Crag on the Owl Prow. The second climb from left drifts deceivingly into the bolt line for the climb to the left. Swerve right around the arete at the second bolt and ascend the face with diverging twin cracks. Suss the crux and make more secure moves up to, but not including, the move to the anchors. Pump out at your own risk.

Descent Options:

Lower off the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Dear God, the Pump

This tricky little trickfest is all sorts of good times. Be really careful for the first two bolts. Be confident with your 11 climbing, enjoy a tricky crux and fight the pump to the anchors.
