A great pitch which gets better and better the higher you go.
Climb 30ft up the easy face towards a big right facing corner. Climb this and then make a tricky step over and in to the main corner that splits the pillar. Stem up the corner until you can move right out on to a perfect green face. Up this for 20 ft then step back left and finish up an easy corner.


This is on the pillar 5 mins to the left (north) of the main crag. Takes the line right up the middle of the prow.
You can rap off slings at the top but bring extra slings incase you need to replace. A 70m is perfect.
You can easily scramble/walk to the notch north of the summit and be back down in 15 mins.


Purple tcu up to 3"
Wire set, peenuts.
Keep a 1.5" for the move out of the corner to the face. Also keep some # 2&3 rocks or simular sizes for the headwall.
