Description:

A line that tends to sand up but is worth a clean as it gives fine climbing. Start in the openbook to the right of Space Odyssey. Climb the openbook to an overhang. Pull through this and finish up the left hand wall above.

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.
