This is located around the corner to the left of High Boltage, about 100 feet of raspberry-bush whacking to the NE of the Dungeon proper. Look for a hanging, right-facing dihedral sandwiched between lower-angled cobbles below and a clean face above. The belay station is inaccessible from the top of the cliff, so a TR would be difficult to set up.

Despite the broken nature of this climb, it has some very enjoyable moves, including an awkward, sequential stem/mantle at the second bolt and inobvious, slightly reachy stemming at the third bolt. 1.93 stars.


4 QDs + a 2-bolt anchor.

Yep, this was actually the very first route that I bolted at The Wood. After doing this, The Rack, Iron Maiden, and Norman Rockshoes, I started developing tendonitis from drilling by the old tap & twist method. Soon after I got myself a Bosch.
