TT approaches the 1st bulge.

Description 

Something for everyone on this as it winds its way up the right edge of NB - intricate, fun, and classic.

Up the arete on the left and make an iffy move to gain the 1st bulge, over this to the nose of the 747 (2nd bulge), over this, and up the slab/face to finish.


Location 

The right edge of the buttress - start inside the chimney/gully on the right.


Protection 

TR - boulder and 3 bolts.

Tony thought that the nose looked like it came from a Jumbo Jet, hence the name.
