This route is right of the two new routes (Pound Town and the unnamed DH line) on the far right side of Oceanic Wall. This climbs the thin and dirty crack just right of Dan's new line. The crack leads to a shelf (poor gear) and continues up above, eventually meeting up with the last bolt and anchors on Dan's new route. This is not a great route, but I thought I should add it to MP for completeness.


This is the farthest right climb on Oceanic Wall.


Falling is not recommended. I placed thin DMM offsets below the shelf. Good finger size pieces protect the top nicely.

I was out cragging this weekend and noticed someone had cleaned this route up a bit and chopped down the deadish tree on the ledge. Thanks for the effort! I didn't think people would want to climb it, but apparently it is an okay pitch. Please just leave it as a trad route though, no need for bolts on this one.
