Description 

Scramble up past a wide section to a roof. Commit to the crack and jam up through a vertical section which gradually eases up. Follow easier (but fun) ground to the summit.


Location 

From Pebbly Poo follow the trail left for a few hundred feet then around a prominent corner and then make your way up to a ledge. Look for a bolted route on an arete with a crack high on the face to the right. The crack is ITPV.


Protection 

Standard RRG rack
Rappel anchors just below the summit
