description

Climbs starting to the left of the old look-out ruins.

RouteGradeStyleSelected ascents
1 Tou-jam 22 Trad 4
2 Atlantic Wall

When looking left from the look-out this starts just at the ridge-line/sky-line, where a slab leans against the cliff. Start up the left side of the slab.

  1. 13, 17m. Up the left side of the slab (be careful of loose blocks) then step right, then up a finger crack to belay on a platform.

  2. 11, 40m. Scramble straight up to an obvious clean break of darker rock between two lichenous faces, then up this to belay on a ledge below an overhang.

  3. 13, 26m. Traverse awkwardly right under the roof, then up a clean crack to a ledge, then traverse somewhat less awkwardly (though over some loose blocks) and under a roof leftwards to belay in a comfortable corner with a roof.

  4. 13, 24m. Climb up the left side to escape past the roof to a platform, scramble up to a gully to the right, then up to the top.

Descent: scramble to the top and hike down, or walk rightwards to the rappel anchors (2x60m) -- they are one level down (reasonable down-climb, marked by cairns).

4 Double Dassie

Climb the blunt arete to the right of Lookout. At the small ledge, pull up onto the fin (sounds hollow, but seems solid) and move strenuosly up and slightly right. Finish up the ramp to the broad ledge.

Starts just left of the concrete of ruins of the lookout on the left side of a detached flake.

  1. 10, 25m. Climb the left side of the flake then follow cracks and face to the vegetated band above. Scramble up to and slightly left to a crack in a dihedral.

  2. 13, 12m. Climb the open book to a ledge to the right with a white block on it.

  3. 13, 30m. From the left end of the ledge, climb the crack to a ledge then up a large chimney and through a worm-hole to the top.

Descent: either hike to the top, or go about 5m skiers-right and down to a rappel anchor (2x60m to bottom).
