A great route with some sustainance. Get into the corner and crack and run for the top. The line is a little sustained and requires some endurance. It is not only better than it looks, it is QUITE good.


A left-facing corner withe hgood looking crack around to far the Rright end of the crag, and just before the super-steep route formerly known as 'Armageddon', but now freed as 'Snot Rocket'


A standrard rack with a good run of cams in the +/- hands sizes. More minus than plus if memory serves.

You just run to a set of anchors under the roof. Super fun route.
