Description 

P1: 5.10a – climb the crack that splits the face to a large ledge.
P2: 5.11a – climb the face and pull the big roof (if you go right instead of directly up the roof it is a letter grade or two easier) (don’t follow the bolts out left as they don’t go anywhere).
P3: 5.10a – climb the face with cracks.
P4: 5.9 – not such a great pitch but it does get you to the ridge.

Location 

Starts 9 meters left of where the stairs first hit the wall.

Protection 

Bolts with anchors.

DANGER--don't go right. do the direct version. the right hand line is very unstable with large blocks coming off after the routes split and there are always lots of people below on the cat wall.
