A fine steep and strenuous line on the corner of the Brown Slabs area.The upper section of the original climb fell off many years back after a small earthquake. It involved an undercling lay back to reach the groove leading to Brown Slabs Arete.P1) Climb into the corner ,crux at 15' then a more easy groove trending right to junction with Brown Slabs Arete. 5.9 80'P2.)Follow the easy arete to the top.5.3 60'

Small cams and stoppers.The FA party used one protection piton just 'above' the crux.
