A sport route that also makes a good beginner trad lead. Climb the face just left of the corner/crack to meet up with the corner. Continue up the corner past a steep section, then out the right face of the corner to anchors.
Starts in a left-facing corner, to the right of the Comic Reliefs and Pit.
sport: 6 bolts, anchors
trad: light rack, hands to fingers, anchors

hollow blocks before last bolt actually seem solid. be mindful, as they do flex when weighted. without these holds, the moves seem unlikely

Fun climb to "go nuts" on. Ditch the cams! A set of stoppers is all you need for a light and enjoyable trad climb at South Clear.
The hollow flake at the top seems to be very near the point of breaking off, although I'm told its been that way for a few years. Ensure your belayer has a helmet on and is very attentive during the last few moves.

FWIW - The hollow blocks below the last bolt are still there, but seemed sketchy. Without those, the moves are less than fun (I led it but relied on the belayer a bit much and mantled over to the ledge - ugly!).

Doesn't feel like 5.7 when you exclude the X'ed out blocks. Last climb of the day, nice surprise at the end.

Very Cool route, think its tougher tan a 5.7, but still a very cool route.

Always harder than I remember it being, usually just do it for old time's sake while I'm here. Fun route for anyone, really.
