none provided, you should top rope, the stone is pretty soft, although if you had some cams & bolts there is a good crack that runs the route

Description:

Several good anchors at the top and minimal places for rope wear, a pad or carpet should take care of that. good humps at the base but requires a small dyno, then easy climb till about midway plenty of holds/underclings/chimney opportunities, at the midway point a mantel or dnyno is required to reach a small ledge. then it is easy climbing again. If you can not make the intial move to get on the route you can move to the left and walk up to the ledge about 8-10ft high then take the ledge back to the route, just watch out because you will have alot of rope out and if you fall you will swing. This route is known locally as "The Serpents Tail" I note that not because I care what people call it, but if you run into a local and ask for help finding it they will probably know it by "The Serpents Tail"

Descent Options:

hike about 25 meters directly away from the face and then turn right you can scurry back, or just top rope it and lower down.

4 out of 5 stars Good Stuff

Pretty fun climb, very sandy in the beginning making for a tough start, but becomes easy and laid back quickly after!

4 out of 5 stars fun climb

fun climb I think the crux was the first move, after that it is pretty easy going nice secure jugs most of the way, it is a little slimy about 3/4 up at the small roof section however if you move left you can clear this section with ease

4 out of 5 stars Good Weekend for A Climb

Getting on the face is the toughest part (and thats not bad) once you get in the crack there are tons of options, one tougher ledge and you are golden. If you take the easy access from the left I would rate it a 5.6
