Affectionately called Pockets of Power, this climb will leave you pumped, gazing at the pulsating two fingers on each of your hands!

the first few moves involve some creative thinking - start in front of scoop, using weird undercling and solid ledge, enjoy your way up using the two/three finger pockets piercing the wall. With 3 awesome pockets,a few razor sharp crimpers and a slight overhang this climb with test you. Top out has some good slaps and crimps, but may need some brush work

Down climb via the Jurrasic Tree Root to the right of 'Coal Train Blues'.

Route History:

  • First Ascent:

    8 months after discovery, I've finally nailed it! Typical finish though - dirt and water in the final hold.... 15min of cleaning and a thorough chalk bath for the last hold and I was shouting and fist pumping at the top!

  • Route Setter:

    I previously overlooked this problem in favor of the other goodies BP has to offer, but Wow what a mistake! Solid rock love!
