BETA PHOTO: The Pod follows the most obvious crack and chimney...

Description 

Climb a few moves up the right side of the blocks at the bottom of Dinkum wall to get a ledge, then use the crack at the back to jam your way up and around the large formation on the right. Then an easy scramble to the top anchors. Lower down for more fun in the Areta Franklin chimney!

Location 

The lowest climb on the Dinkum wall, this ascends the uphill side of the Inside Passage (the gap between Dinkum Wall and Areta Franklin Buttress).

Protection 

Toprope anchors (2 bolts) accessible from the top of Buck's Bar Dome.

You can trad lead this route if you're comfortable climbing 15 feet of easy run out slab at the top to the bolted anchors.

Thanks Steve, updated the route to show it's trad-able.

Cool route. We used two long slings to extend the anchor. That way you don't have to run out the slab to the bolts, although its really easy.
