Pull up from the good hold at the start to gain a small crimp for your right hand. Pinch the arete with your left hand and whip your feet onto the starting hand hold and slap up for the under cling.

Now you are in the groove, the difficulties ease a bit, as you stem up the groove towards the capping overhang.

Make some more hard move to pass the overlap, and sink you hand into the good crack above.

Polneys best hard route.


Climbs the overhanging groove in the toe of the buttress.


Trad Gear.

A great route. I was able to get a small RP in a faint crack near the start, and a good #2 rock in the peg hole 2/3 of the way up.
