An easy start up a vertical face with juggy holds. The finish is a challenging overhang.
Left Handed Octopus is in the area known as "Upper Cave". This route is just right of "Snakes and Ladders"and left of the cave entrance.
"Left Handed Octopus" is 18 meters tall. Start up the vertical face with good holds. The last 3 bolts are on an exciting overhang with good holds. The anchor (double chains) are visible from the ground. They hang out over the overhanging finish. Lowering/Rappelling from the anchor you are hanging out away from the rock, unable to reach the rock because of the overhanging anchor. This may pose a challenge cleaning gear on the way down. Halfway down you will lower past the Anchor for "Snakes and Ladders".
8-10 quickdraws and anchor material.
