Several variations are possible. The left most option is the fattest and steepest and offers full value 4/4+ climbing. The right options are usually quite thin and spa by. The 'crux' is topping out the pillar/chimney about 40' up.


From the stone but head up and right, up a steep slab and following easy (WI2) and some class 3/4 terrain to a 30' step of golden WI3+ that leads to the base of the actual route.


Screws. 10/13cm very useful. A #1 Camelot is very useful for reducing the pucker factor in thin conditions.
