DescriptionThis route follows the first four pitches of The Consolation, but instead of joining either Who-dunit or The Long Climb it continues up a flaring crack and over a roof.
Pitch 1-4: The Consolation, belay at a sloping ledge with a good sized tree.
Pitch 5: At the right end of the ledge climb up a short crack, then follow a crack with broken ledges up and left to the bottom of a slightly flaring crack. You will also be able to see the roof. Belay here.
Pitch 6: Climb the crack and the roof and belay above the roof.
Pitch 7: Easier climbing to the top.
