<< Revolver
 
Nest Egg >>
2 pitches. starts just right of Revolver. Gain the obvious hanging block from the right. Continue above this to gain a short groove leading up and left. Follow this to a compact wall. Traverse right to a large tree (now absent) and belay in its remains. Make a rising traverse back left until below an obvious roof. Continue left along an airy line of good holds until an easy exit up leads to the top. Cautious belay on tree stumps. Variation. Follow P1 but instead of traversing right to the tree belay, climb the wall direct with help from crystaline pockets on the slab to the left to regain the r-l traverse above. Bold.

Not hard at the grade but pleasant climbing.

Done in one pitch. 'Compact wall' a little tricky - maybe you miss it in two pitches.

Actually very well protected if you look about you. Got a good micro in in the middle of the 'run out' section!

The peg mentioned in the guide book is missing. Reasonable small hex from the ledge and then crucial rock 2 before the run-out crux section. Second couldn't follow, so abbed out the gear, climbed the first pitch of Tree Route to the shared belay and then led 2nd pitch.
