Start off on slab and then climb a bulgy face. This is a nice long route with pretty good rock.


The first route from the top of the gulley of the east section of Sky Valley. (The east section is accessed by rapping or down climbing this gulley. There are rap anchors behind a large bush at the top of the gulley.)

Much better route than we thought it would be. Slabby at the bottom (being somewhat tall helps with the first clip, decent fall if you miss) to easier, more bulgy climbing at the top. Well worth doing.
