Fun, sporty single pitch right of Centrefold. Pitch of the day for us, a pleasant surprise. I went with some gym climbers who all agreed it was easier than Mushroom, though I disagree. Neat moves do all seem quite gymnastic and balancy rather than jam-intensive.
Start up and right past two bolts through some balancy, well-protected moves. Trend straight upwards along the crack through a short but thought-provoking roof, then haul your way to the anchors through big holds.
Starts twenty meters right of Centrefold around the boulder. Fixed rope takes you to the base of the route, maybe five meters above the trail.
Two bolts then standard rack to a #3 Camalot

super fun route, although getting to the first bolt is a tiny bit spooky with the flakes. upper roof is just a blast. good protection, interesting climbing, well worth doing.
