DescriptionP1-Climb more or less straight up to towards the bottom of the large arching corner passing a small right facing corner and belaying in a sort of scoop.
P2-Climb the crack up to the roof, turn the roof using a face hold up and right protect with small gear, blue alien and a stopper. The crux of this route is not particularly physical but demands attention, make sure to spend time finding the foot holds and stay calm, staying in one place is easy, moving up onto the next footholds is the hard part, about 10 feet of very delicate climbing where the corner arches right over your head. Continue up the corner with a combination of face, layback and stemming moves with small gear in the corner and horizontals.
LocationOn the Windward/lower of the two walls, climbing up to then following the obvious right facing arching corner high on the wall.
Descent-Rap with a single 70m rope going down Good Clean Fun, or continue up one of the routes on the upper wall.
