Description

E2 5b/c. Deservedly the classic of the area: an immaculate thin crack/slab climb up the left side of the stack.

Start at the prominent crack about 5m to the right of the left arete of the slab and follow this to a wide slot just above an overlap (bold to here). Make tenuous moves left to another crack and follow this to where it fades. Now step back right into a final thin crack which leads to the top of the slab. A very sustained, but well protected pitch.

Protection

Mostly small-medium wires. A couple of good small (up to BD .4) cam placements along the way. Best done on double ropes.
