<< Honeypot < Condor | Adam Adamant > None >>
Stackpole's first ever route. The first pitch drags you around to the South Face a little; the second pitch features the upper groove system on the West Face. It's also possible to climb the variation start at 5a, which gives a better balanced and higher quality route.</br>1) 4c, 18m. Climb the accommodating groove, to arrive at the halfway ledge, then traverse leftwards along the ledge system to gain the foot of the groovy second pitch.</br>2) 5a, 14m. The clean groove is followed all the way to a good exit.</br>1a) variation start 5a, 16m. Climb the lower corner, then the steep groove above, using the short slab on the left to gain the belay ledge above.
