Description:

Excellent route: Start up any of the crack systems behind the big "Pedestal" boulder that sits 5m away from the wall. Climb face and crack (5.8 variations exist) to lower angle slab below roof. Work through the slightly overhanging headwall and up to the top. An escape to the left can be done (old, old route called "Hollywood"), joining the upper part of "Pedestal version 2".

5 out of 5 stars Super fun

Great lead. Started on the right leaning crack just right of 'Pedestal', followed it right around the steep overhang, pulled through a short face with some iffy flakes and met up with the 'Pure Fun' line described in Eric Horst's book at the piton below the juggy overhang

5 out of 5 stars Pure Fun is Right

This is a fun climb for leaders of all grades. Starts with good crack moves... then an easy face climb to the exciting but juggy overhang. Sink a big (#3) piece in the overhang and don't look back.
