Good varied climbing on fantastic holds. From the tree, head up the slab using opposing side pulls. Rock straight through the bulge to easier ground. Tackle the small flake and move through to the anchor.

Climb the steep slab past 3 bolts. Devious moves go slightly right to a hard sequence over the bulge. Climb straight through to the last bolt.

Originally climbed on natural gear, this climb has been retro-bolted and makes an engaging, sporty outing, ‘the biggest holds you’ll ever fall off.’ . Starts as for Safety in Numbers. At the 3rd bolt, traverse right through edges and ledges. Mantle over to the anchor.
