Rock (Sport)
Sport climb, generally well protected. Take 12x quickdraws and slings for the belays. Bolts on the second pitch are a bit dodgy with some home made hangers and spinners - but the crux bolts are well positioned and bomber, with an extra rap station just be

Great 4 pitch sport route right up the middle of the main face directly through 2 overlaps and a roof. Crux is getting through the roof on P2 and its quite a hard 10a - but well protected. P2 could really do with re-bolting, there are some dodgy bolts and hangers there apart from the crux. Excellent climbing on clean rock, good exposure and views. Pity it doesn't top out, but given the rockfall danger to the busy path below, its probably a good idea.

Descent Options:

Rap the route. You can do it with a single 60m rope, but if you drag a 2nd rope up you'll get down much faster.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

A Joyama classic, excellent route. I led the easy pitches, my partner did the 5.10a crux and the last (somewhat runout) pitch.
