Grade Route

Nestled in a crevasse between two boulders to the right of the first major cliff you come to on the walk up from Mt Barney Lodge. This chossy monstrosity is only worth the trip out if it is hot and there are no alternatives. Shady is about the only thing this climb has going for it follow the weakness on the summit side. Aptly named, as upon topping out I was bleeding, cramping and screaming but lived to fight another month. Protection is okay until the top where a runnout through the crux is required. Two large trees at the top make a great anchor.

The best climb on Gillies. A well shaded beautiful lay back finger crack with good protection. A little choss but some beautiful moves. Top belay and rap from small tree and boulder at top.
