Description 

One of the most exciting climbs you will do at the grade. Sandbag (like most of Arapiles), a few moves felt like they should have been graded 5.9. Thought provoking crux at start of second pitch involves climbing horizontally out into empty space, placing a sling for protection and doing a mantle. Moves are actually quite easy and protection great, but an A+ for exposure.

Location 

South side of Mitre Rock

Protection 

Standard Arapiles rack. Plenty of nuts, some cams and some slings.
