Andy at the junction of Curiosity Killed the Rat ....

Description 

Start up a short steep bulge on to a slab. Move up and left passing a few bolts to a short headwall. Pull this, then move right and finish up the last 30ft of Curiosity killed the Rat.

It was first done in two pitches but it is best to do all in one pitch. We were going to head up the corner to the left but found better rock to the right.


Location 

Three Finger Canyon.
Berghaus Wall.
Thirty feet left of Curiosity killed the Rat.


Protection 

Bolts and #2 camalot above the headwall.
Rap "Curiosity" with double ropes.
