Double Chaser >>
|65m, 3 pitches. The left hand of the three parallel lines is the most obvious, starting with a right facing corner. Belay at the base of the corner.
1. 25m From the belay climb up between the corner and a large perched block. Surmount the bulging corner and continue up to belay on the left.
2. 25m Climb the cracked wall above and continue with interest to an overhanging barrier wall split by a tapered slot. Pull up and into the slot, then exit and go left to belay overlooking Toxic Brew. Excellent pitch.
3. 20m Step into Toxic Brew groove and follow to top.
