Description 

A [70m] rope is a must, barely getting you back to the ground. Fun, varied climbing starting at the right-facing corner, finishing on the steep orange horn. In the summer, the flies can be bad in this gully.


Location 

This is located at the top of the gully, left of the main wall.


Protection 

15 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

Eds. bring 2 ropes or a 70m rope.

This was fun but very easy for 10c. The crux, which according the guidebook is at the top, felt like 9. Very straighforward with good feet and hands leading to the crack that leads to the anchors. The crux for me was about midway where after hand traversing left you end up balanced in a left-facing corner. Getting back right out of that corner was a bit dicey.

The description says a 60m will get you to the ground, but we were just barely to the ground with our 70m. Good idea to knot your ends on this one.
