A better start to 'Old Original'.

  1. 4th Class 20m Easy horizontal traverse left (no gear) to a large hole with 2 bolts in it.

  2. 5.7 25m Up the chute above to belay at a stance (natural gear).

  3. 5.5 20m Move right to a bolt, then up over bulges to join 'Old Original' at the top of the first pitch.

A one pitch direct start to 'Derringer'. Starts atop the messy pile of large broken boulders, halfway up the approach slope to 'Derringer' / 'Old Original'. Look for a patch of orange lichen at the base.

An easy, adventurous traverse of the top of Machete Ridge.
