This route climbs a little bit of easy face to gain a crack. The crack is followed to a pod with a tree in it, where one moves out left and climbs the face up and left through three bolts. The upper face is definitely the business of the climb.


Follow the directions to the Abominable Snowman. Once there, look for a crack that starts a little ways off the ground (NOT the one which begins on the ground - this is Creatures of Love. Piranha Crack is to the left of this more obvious crack.) You'll know you're in the right place if you find a pin which protects the face moves into the crack.


One old fixed pin below the crack, standard rack for the crack itself, and three bolts up high.

Bolted anchors on top. One 60 m rope will get you down.
