Description 

A peak classic, and a climb not without some controversy. The climb was badly chipped prior to the first ascent - nobody owned up to the chipping.

Start a few feet left of a small corner climb up with difficulty until a tricky move up and left allows the obvious line of slanting holds to be reached.

Stay cool, and climb up the holds until a hard move on the steeper headwall allows the finished to be reached.


Location 

Center of the slab on the right of the area.


Protection 

None.
