Description 

A good a varied route.

Climb directly up to the overhang, and traverse right below it. Enter a brown corner and climb this. At the top of the corner (poor protection), step left onto the slab, and finish up this.


Location 

Starts at the lowest point of the left section of the face, before a mass of large broken blocks.


Protection 

Trad Gear

FFA - I soloed this route free many times before 1972 and I suspect that it had been climbed free many times before that
