A nice hand crack. Worth a little more attention than it receives. Could use a litle cleaning in the crack but still fun as is.


Just left of a steep treed gully, about 150 feet to the right of Klahanie crack. Starts up an easy left facing corner then up into a hand crack.


Cams .5 to #2 Camelots and nuts. Save a #1 or #2 for the top. Can be rapped to a treed gully above and to the right of the start with a 60m rope.

Fun route. We used two ropes to get off. One could rap the side with a single 60m and get off I think. Chain anchor. I placed a #3, but one could do without it.

fantastic climb. A bit slimy at the top, and still fantastic.

Pleasant surprise, this route a great complement to Klahanie Crack. Short distinct crux where the crack crosses the dyke, cruisey elsewhere.

A 70m just barely reaches the base when rapping. For top-roping you might want to think about extending the anchor a bit. Don't worry about the rope lengths too much though, as the first five meters are low 5th. Very down-climbable.
