Description 

This is the beautiful face. Slightly overhanging at it's top with good holds.
Climb up to stance above first bolt, then finesse your way right through the right leaning ramp/corner. Back left to a good stance above second bolt. Straight up the clean rock on positive holds to anchor. This route is 4 stars if you avoid all the big but ugly holds on left.
If you climb left the grade goes down a bit and the quality a lot. Try to take the most aesthetic line possible and you will be rewarded.

Location 

Left of the prominent dihedral is a short right facing, right leaning ramp/corner about 5 meters off the ground. Immediately left of Sidewinder.

Protection 

5 bolts + anchor
