3-star, This is without doubt the classic of the crag if not the Sinai. i) Climb the obvious clean crack and finish climbing easy broken ledge. 35m. ii)`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 iii) Climb corner to base of next corner. 20m iv) 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.
