Left of the right wing wall is a nice right leaning crack. The traditional start of this route is on the right via Herberium, then traverse left and start the crack. Check your rope drag, as it can be a beast as you continue up the crack. This climb can optionally be started with Tiptoe, but there is no gear until you get up to the crack, and Tiptoe is a 5.9 start.


Standard trad rack.
