'Biome'

Park near the top of Signal Street.

Description 

Turn the roof directly and follow thin moves past the steep bulge.
Quality stone and interesting features.

Top Roping:
There are two bolts up top for the TR. Hike up the third class gully and follow a faint trail over the other side to reach the ledge.

Location 

The direct line up the left-side wall.

Protection 

One large cam for the pod, a draw for the bolt above.

Dev. Notes:
'Biome' was cleaned on rappel and then led from the start. It was done on gear as a serious, R rated lead.
A bolt has since been added up high to reduce the chance of ground fall, but it's still an exciting climb.
