Approach

Route description

1) 40m. Cracks on the right avoid initial loose blocks, then up the wanderfully
sculpted stepped ridge to a ledge where the buttress steepens.
2) 30m. A really enjoyable pitch up the wall above using a variety of surprising
holds and adequate protection.
3) 25m. On up the ridge over a large boulder. Then up a crack in a slab. Scramble
on up to a level arête and descend rightwards
