Description [Suggest Change]

Feel the magic.

1. Up into the tree.

2. Out right, up good cracks, to a sloping belay ledge on the right.

3. Traverse back left around a few corners to the large pale corner with pins and flakes.

4. Up this unlikely-looking corner, placing marginal gear and clipping old pins. Crux moves are getting across the blank face to a belay ledge on the left. I won't ruin the fun, but look all around you to find the right sequence.

Location [Suggest Change]

Up through the obvious white tree. Walk off to the campsite on the left side of Main Wall

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack + micronuts


Only 3 stars??? I think this is a bit mean! Ian Howell and I made the first ascent of this route in the mid-70s, and I have repeated it many times since. I think it is one of the best routes on the Main Wall.
