Description:

Excellent climbing on a steep wall, and a good test of nerve for the leader. Start on the Owl ledge as for Space Truckin’.

Climb up past the peg and follow a diagonal line of good incut finger holds to the base of a recess on the right (unprotected between the peg and recess, but a bomb-proof wire can be placed in the rail by moving slightly left after passing the peg). Climb the recess to the top.

Ethic: inherited from Monteseel

Climbing is allowed as long as no plants are damaged. No bolting is allowed. Most pegs have been cut. No damaging the rock in anyway. There are people living below so no throwing things off the cliff. There are also people living above the cliff so be respectful.
