Paul Ross on the first Ascent
A climb on excellent clean rock. A scary and poorly protected lead .Starts at the foot of the West Buttress. Reach a finger crack in a corner and climb this to a small ledge (in situ piton). Swing right from the ledge around the rib into an open scoop, then the wall directly above and move onto a slab. Move into a small groove then up to a horizontal crack. From this climb directly to the top .5.11a/b 85'(E3 6a)
