A good hard pitch to the left of Spite and Malice. Start out on loose, though moderate climbing for twenty feet or so and then move left towards a small roof and dihedral, and climb dihedral to the top. Thin at the top.
To the left of Spite and Malice, middle of the wall.
Extra small stuff. 70m rope

A good hard pitch indeed! For the onsight rack I suggest 3x grey-yellow TCU's and 2x .5-1, +small/medium nuts. The beginning is easy, but tread carefully as there is some loose stuff still. The brunt of the climb is thin fingers with a few hidden thank god holds here and there. The top section looks hard to protect from below, but good options show up. A long pitch, not sure if a 60m would make it?

The blocks at the start are probably OK. But I would not want to fall before reaching the crack. Though climbing is easy. The crack section of the route is fantastic.
