Nice climb, transfer from left to right side of climb at second clip needs to be looked into to enable a clean ascent.
meltdown34 - 2nd dog - 21/Aug/13 with Doug

Second to last climb of day. To get to second clip have to follow hand holds left but then need to traverse right in order to continue up. This is where we both kept falling off.

Took me a bit to get up especially the last bolt before the top. Bit more polished than I would have liked but there was actually enough for me to hold on to.

Can finish to the left under the roof, but this time finished with a LH dyno to the knarly knob above and to the left of the lower off - nice committing move, even for a 6 footer.
