Route Description


Mount Morgan would clearly be not the same unless to try this cliffs option. If the ladder climb doesn't give you another of a thrill then the cave and additional scrambling clearly will. Watch from the tricky right manuver from the left to the right ladder.

Warning: Do not use this route in winter as a descending route and use caution on this route especially in winter. It is a very fun small section to ascend, however it can be very dangerous to descend.
