[Al seeing the sand on Old Peg Groove, 3 kb]10m. This seldom-climbed route offers a variety of cheeky moves. Start in the dank recess 2m to the right of Snotty Nose. Romp up sandy ledges to a left-trending crack and check out the old peg (which is hard to see from the ground). Slide a hex into the crack and commit to a great move to reach a smaller, right-trending crack. Follow this to a sandy finish and a boulder belay. Si Lynch 2009.

I tried to place gear, it fell out. I saw no peg as I was freaking out. Climbed poorly and soloed by accident.

Laced the crux with gear, crux holds are smooth and not that positive and quite committing, but still a good climb.
