DescriptionA brilliant Upper Wall testpiece, with a reputation for spitting people off!
Set off easily up the crack to a decent rest at a ledge about half way up. Place a nest of gear (medium-large nuts) then power up the continuation of the crack until it fades a couple of metres above the ledge. (It's possible, but strength-sapping, to place a small cam - about .4 or .5 - in this section.)
At this point you will really start to feel how steep the wall is as you make a couple of desperate lunges off crimps to gain good holds above. Much easier climbing up a narrow corner takes you to the belay bolts.
LocationA thin, rightward-slanting crack with a curious "pancake" formation at the bottom (useful for anchoring a belayer on).
