This is without doubt the classic of the crag if not the Sinai.
1) Climb the obvious clean crack and finish climbing easy broken ledge. 35m.
2)`climb the groove and into crack. Climb out right onto flake and mantle. Climb back
left and upto overhang. Pass this on left side into finger crack. This leads to ledges
climb these into a short wall. Climb this to hand traverse right to shallow groove/crack
leading to large ledge and ab point. 55m
3) Climb corner to base of next corner. 20m
4) Climb corner past tree and then belay in crack. 20m
Desent: walk off back of summit and down gully back to the base of the route. Or abseil
off large ledge 55m to another ab point on large broken ledge 28m. TAT may need
replacing.
Note it is essential to extend runners more than normal, and to pay attention to your rope
management, or the bold slab climbing is difficult.
