Brent on Draw Iron

Description 

Start on the far right side of the east face of Trundle pinnacle, in front of a shapely oak. Climb through overlaps to steep pockets. On the upper face the route was bolted to climb left under the lip for an interesting finish, though most parties will go straight up.

Location 

Right side of the east face. Start at the edge of the drop-off in front of the tree.

Protection 

12 bolts + anchors

A really great route involving some wild pockets in the middle. The rating on this was a consensous rating, but might feel stiff for shorter folks. Traversing the lip out over the roof, in my honest opinion, is a really exciting and fun finish (three stars). Heading straight up is substantially easier (two stars). So if you're gonna do it more than once, try both ways and see what you think.

Either way you slice it, this route is nicely overhung, and pretty varried on some of the nicest rock on the mountain.
