Rockfax Description
A big line that gives an adventurous outing and is at the upper end of the grade. Start under the corner to the left of the undercut buttress taken by Tumbleweed Connection.
1) 5a, 35m. Climb the corner (sparse protection at first) to a bulge that is passed on the right. Continue up a groove and cracks to a grassy ledge and belay.
2) 4c, 30m. Move out rightwards to a groove (shared with Praying Mantis). Follow the groove past a steep section to slabby ground. Head leftwards to vegetation and trees. © Rockfax
