Description

Many people only climb P1, but P2 is great too.

  1. 5.10a 30m Fun crimping up a gorgeous polished orange water streak, passing 6 bolts (the 4th and 5th of which are very poorly positioned) to a bolted anchor (shared with 'Shooting Star').

  2. 5.10a 25m Head left up a ramp (bring small to medium gear), then up the face above passing 3 bolts to a natural anchor.

Abseil descent from the bolted anchor above 'My Laundry' (2 raps with a 60m rope).
