Gear on Gollum 31-Mar-2011 At 1:47:43 PM prb
The Auto-to-Skink pitch had me more worried than the top Gollum pitch as the climbing was just as hard and there was more to hit if you came off. Having said that, it was fine with a bit of care.

Leaving Skink, there's a peg (?) on the arete. I then went L for a few metres and up a couple of metres to a pretty good small cam. I think there was a bomber cam soon after. The climbing eases and pro can be found here and there above that. Take wires and a good selection of cams to #2 or 3. The climbing at the start of the pitch isn't hard at the grade, an allowance for its runnout nature must have been made. If your second comes off just after the peg, hopefully s/he won't end up wedged in Watchtower Crack!
