Description

Three boulders come together to make a narrow passageway and some excellent bouldering. Descend the boulders via the chimney in the narrow passage way. Flexitime wall is ~50m uphill from the main blocks .

Access issues inherited from Eastern Outcrops

Upper paths are angled and slippery - use caution

Approach

Follow the path to the Back Wall. Where the path leads up to the Back Wall, keep walking ~100m down hill to the north-east from the back wall. Can't miss the boulders and cave.

Sit start on Arete immediately left of DITD. Green block to left out. Slap happy climbing up to jugs - follow the holds diagonally up right till they end. Makes for a pleasant V1 as a standing start.

Stand start in a elevator door move (two gastons). Think 'stick' and throw up to the jugs and top out.

The green block to the left is out.

Start standing up into the sloping scoop. Grab the tiny crimps and learn to fly.

Thin and super commiting! Instead of escaping left as per Moamyn's Manual, eliminate that problems finishing hold and continue straight up to the groove above via a small incut edge.

FA: dalai, 5 Nov

SDS short left leaning seam to dish just below the chockstone. Long move right to finish mantelling onto the shelf.

SDS. Right arete via hueco. Checked this again and realise why I didn't bother a few decades ago. Average rock but may clean up eventually.
