Description:

A few meters left of "Dave, Dave, Dave of the Jungle" is a section of vertical to overhanging rock that looks like an upside-down staircase. The route starts up this.

Pull up the upside-down staircase, onto a bit of a platform and a dirty ascent for a few meters, to the base of a wide right-sloping crack full of garden. Proceed up the slab along a small left-sloping crack/seam to the top of this, then angle up and right to a small horizontal, then up and right a bit more to another crack. Up straight from this onto a small vegetated ledge, then up leftwards to the scree field on top of the cliff and a bolted anchor.

Route History:

  • First Free Ascent: David Gibbs & Phil Price, 2 Jul 2012

    Phil picked out the line and first took a shot at this, pulled the initial overhang and got up past the top of the left-sloping crack, then fell while placing gear, dropping the tri-cams. He lowered to find the gear. David then climbed on Phil's gear to the end of where Phil had place gear (4 placements up), and finished the climb with 3 more placement & the anchor decision.
