  • Description 

    This pitch is similar to the classic billboard of Wild Kindgom at Moores. To access this fantastic pitch, scramble up the first pitch gully of the Slimey, which is mostly 3rd/4th class.

    Climb the face past 4 bolts to a medium cam under a small roof. From here continue up and slightly right to the orange and black face protected by 3 bolts and some gear. At the horizontal roof band, place a directional (for follower) and move left to a belay at some old hexes slung with cable. The next pitch is aid to the top, but it's easy to just rap back to the 4th class gully for the descent.


    Location 

    Climbs the amazing orange wall just left of the Slimey P-2 gully.


    Protection 

    light rack.
