Description:

A short jaunt up a blocky dihedral between two very tall boulders. From the top you can rap off a 2-bolt anchor, set up a for one of the adjacent climbs of this same bolted anchor, or step across the chasm to the main wall to continue up a short crack (5.7) and an easy slab to a large oak with a chain anchor and rap ring. A 60m rope will get you down from here.

4 out of 5 stars Remember the Cairne!

Great starter. You can set up anchors quite easily for TR. You can use your runners. Use "Serene" when using that Hunker of a boulder at the top. Nice to have met Ryan & Nicky that day! Thanks for the help on location.
