Starts on west facing side of formation.
P1. Climb up finger and hand cracks 80 feet moving left under a bush to a 2 bolt anchor.
P2. More hand and finger cracks up towards another bush. After 50 feet or so move left on face to another crack system that leads to 2 bolt anchor at ledge.
P3. Climb crack in the corner for 60 feet or so to two options for a finish. Both lead to a ledge with 2 bolt anchor.
Linking P 1 and 2 would be fine. Linking P3 will likely cause enough rope drag that the pitch would not be as enjoyable.
Rap the route with a single 60m rope.
First major buttress to the East of Unemployment Line. There is a major drainage that leads right up to the base of the formation that you can see as you approach the area.
Single set of cams form .3 to 3. Set of nuts, Offsets useful. 6 or so runners. One 60m rope. Can bring a bit extra in finger and hand sizes if you want to link.
