Description:

Climb Frog's head until you are above to small bulge about 12m off the ground. Traverse straight out right towards a nice dihedral, ascending a little just before you reach it. Gear belay at the base of the dihedral on a nice ledge. Climb straight up the dihedral. You can belay from bolted rap anchors off to the left of the climb on the top ledge. 1 60m rap to the ground. There's a short third pitch that I didn't do. The third pitch has a fantastic well protected roof. Instead of heading to the bolts at the top of P2 Go right on the ledge, climb the big corner climb thru the roof just above the corner. Its a quick excursion and you can rap right back down to the Frogs Head bolts.

4 out of 5 stars very fun

Haven't been on this for years. Lots of fun. P1 is a throw away. P2 is easy. P3 is the money pitch. Very interesting roof exit.

4 out of 5 stars ok

I remember the roof at the last pitch was challenging - climbed it laybacking.
