<< Bower Route 1 < Direct Start | Mordaunt > Requiem >>
A wandering route with some quality climbing.
1) 6a, 10m. Climb the thin hanging crack and its wider continuation until the Bower can be reached by a short traverse.
2) 5c, 15m. Climb to the giant roof then follow the strenuous hand-traverse out left to the arete. Step left and climb Five Finger Exercise to below its crux flake then traverse left to a belay in Owl Gully. Problematic rope-work on this pitch.
3) 5c, 10m. Climb the steep diagonal crack to the right edge of the Fern Hill ledge and an awkward exit
