Platypus west face

Description 

This route has some good climbing on it, but the fact that its crux is before you clip the first bolt certainly detracts from its quality.

Make puzzling moves up to the first bolt, using any form of trickery you can muster. Clip the first bolt and head up easier, but still interesting, terrain past two more bolts to the anchors.

I thought the bottom of this route was particularly stout for the grade. "Plat-A-Pussy" has a harder crux but is less sustained than its neighbor, "Moss Man".


Location 

The left of the two routes on the West Face (see Platypus area description)


Protection 

3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. To rappel, use the "Moss Man" anchors.
