Description Suggest change

Another classic line at First Face! Climbs the left-angling crack system just right of the large overhangs. At the top of the diagonal crack, traverse right along a narrow ledge to a second left-leaning crackline with a few horizontal features for holds. Follow the crack to a ledge and a bit of a rest on hand jams. Then step left on the ledge to finish up a final three meter thin crack to the top (for this section save some small cams or nuts and try not to take away your finger jams!) Fantastic route.

[Note: according to Sean Willett's guidebook, "local climbers cleaned this route, but before they could make their first ascent, chalk marks mysteriously appeared up the entire climb. The explanation? Two visiting climbers and former employees of Black Diamond Equipment had been in the area and unknowingly made the first ascent."]

Location Suggest change

Where the giant arching roofs meet the ground on the climber's right end of the crag.
