A little gem of a route, hidden out of the way of the crowds far below. The rock is immaculate, the moves are a perfect balance of delicate and dynamic; the only problem is the indistinct line at the top. The crux is negotiating the slight groove around bolt 3, and has several solutions making various use of a good hold on the left and a good pocket to the right.


The right-most of the sport routes on the upper tier. Found just left of a crack with a piton at about half-height.


5 bolts, 2-bolt lower-off with rings.
