Begin in chimney and commence up right face through broken crack system and trend left around blocky bulge to base of dihedral (handcrack). Traverse left onto face, make a challenging clip, head for the arete (crux), and follow it to the top.

Nice exposure and beautiful view.

(Crux - inspect and strategize thoroughly, it's all there.)


Far right side of Sandstonia Wall, past Shady Lady (5.7) alcove, around corner, through slot, past Witches of Bangor (10c), begins in corner chimney.


9 bolts.
60m rope.

Bolt 8 is loose. Both the hanger and the nut. I hand tightened as best I could, but didn't have a tool with me.
