Description

A quality route with a bouldery crux through the half-height bulge, start at the base of a left-facing corner a few metres to the right of the big block.

Move easily up to a ledge in the corner and clip the first bolt (high - stick-clip advised), then proceed using the arete on the right (bolt) to the big break before moving back left. There is a good rest on a knee-bar in the break (bolt 3 reachable from here) before embarking on the crux, which can be solved in at least 2 ways, both powerful and reachy. From crimps above (bolt 4) make a final tenuous move right to big holds and the final bolt. Above, a small left-facing corner leads to the top. Lower-off on the slab to the right.

Location

Starts up the corner a few metres to the right of the big block on the upper (right hand) part of the crag.

Protection

5 bolts, in situ something between bolts 2 and 3, 2-staple lower-off.
