Comments: watch the rope drag on the last pitch - E25a for the Brits (ie feels scary!)
bring 2 x70s and abseil off the chains 20m to the left at the top break. Half way point being a hanging thread on the arete.

Comments: how hard is it to mark a trail to the crag? - wasted 1hr getting lost.. Dont follow the cairned trail round to the right of the face, we eventually followed the dry river bed direct to hit the crag at the LHS

E3/4 6a for the UK crew. The guide mentioning funky gear placements just means know how to use wires
5th pitch has no bolted anchor, so i went to 65m out and after a loose block, created a trad belay. Another 65m took me to the top

Be careful on the descent, really dangerous, esp if dark... more >>

Comments: belly button - rock has poor patina on LHS crag, especially on lower cliff band. Lots of loose rock on the upper sections - wear helmet. some difficult gear placements and spacey bolts, probably not for beginners..
main belly button area has really unstable scree base. The rock has awesome patina, bolts are a bit spacey like Ceuse, pumpy enduro with hard to find holds and a bit greasy, routes around 6c-7a+. My favorite area around Redding. (castle crags just too big a walk in!)

Comments: you can go high here or slightly easier to stay low on the traverse.

The ledge from which one starts pitch one is clearly visible in the lower left portion of the photo.

Moonraker keeps following the crack up and leftwards, whereas dreadnaught breaks off right to the traverse that Tom is seen on here in the photo

Comments: 3rd pitch seems a bit pointless (if doing the 5c version).
We did the last 2 pitches in one go
