DescriptionGorgeous dihedral to an improbable-looking outside corner, with a delicate crux move near the top.
Climb the dihedral about 50', stem out right onto the arête and climb up, passing two bolts, to the overhang. Ascend up the nose, step left to a hidden crack, then climb a short slab above, and either use the bolt anchor (70m rope required!), or climb through another (easier) overhang onto a large ledge.
LocationAt the shallow "cave" leading to a dihedral with a wide hand crack in it, near the outside corner of the main buttress.
Reach the cave via a short scramble up a chimney on to below & left of the route.
