Steve making the bold step out of the tree on Petr...

Description 

Some very interesting moves! Start near to the right of Lunchtime Ledge by climbing a large tree below a slab and next to an acute overhang. Attach a runner in the tree, then step out onto the slab next to a large bolt. It looks a lot steeper from here than it did from the bottom!

Carefully climb up the slab to two fixed pins at the base of a large flake. From here, climb up and onto the flake before traversing right. Some delicate moves along the flake bring you to a larger ledge and a left-facing corner. Put some gear in the corner crack and then step back left to proceed. Easier climbing to the top-out.


Location 

Starts on the Lunchtime Ledge. Look for a large tree, next to a double-overhang and a slab above. There is a rock anchor bolt in the slab, making the route quite conspicuous. The route tops out at footpath along the top of the gorge. Descent can be made either left or right, but right is recommended.


Protection 

Standard rack. A couple of rusty pitons at the bottom of the flake and runners could be attached to some large bolts (remnants of quarrying, not the usual hangers!), though this is not recommended!
