There is a lot to like about this climb, but also some detracting features as well.

The good: good stone for the top 2/3 of the route and a great, dynamic crux slap to a positive edge.

The bad and the ugly: the belay is on a sloping, loose, weed-tangled hillside, and the first 1/3 of the route is choss, including some holds you may really want to pull hard on....

You will wonder why you are bothering to start with, then when you get into the good stone, you will start to think it is a pretty good line after all. Overall, it is worth doing, but make sure you stick clip the first bolt.


This is just left of The Stung, or the third from the right edge of the crag.


6-7 bolts: you really should stick clip the high first bolt.
