    Pick the Flora, Eat the Fauna, 55m, 18
    A fun route with two varied pitches, Pick the Flora and then Eat the Fauna. Surprisingly different slab climbing on each pitch, easy access and an expansive mid way ledge make it a worthwhile route. Pitch 1 starts left of the slabby dike that leads to Fairy Steps. Pitch 2 starts left of the main steeper dike line climbed by Fairy Steps. The dike line is easy to spot, just down from the saddle between Marmabup Rock and Devil’s slide.

    Pitch 1, 25m
    Grade 17, one tricky move. Look for the hangers on a smooth light grey slab. Start off some blocks and climb the slab. Crux gaining the diagonal groove. Requires slab technique 101 to reach the groove. DBB higher up where the angle lessens.

    Pitch 2, 30m
    Grade 18. Scramble up to belay on the ledge below the far left end of the head wall. Climb up past hangers and traverse right on ramp then up (crux) with bigger holds appearing soon. DBB and an awesome view.
