In the Peapod


Start below the peapod shaped gash in the rock. Climb up and into the peapod and then bridge your way to the top.

At the top reach awkwardly out to a good ledge and make even more awkward moves to gain a standing position on the ledge.

Finish directly up the steep crack above.


The peapod is easily recognized in the middle of the wall.

Hard and strenuous but well protected. Usually I think UK 5b means 5.9+, but this one seems harder!

Great route, mainly due to the feature. Awkward but Id say its 5.9, gear everywhere.

Agree: awesome route. I did it for the first time last week. I think HVS sums it up well. It's hard and strenuous, but too awkward to get a higher grade!
