Climb up face/slab features past a bolt 20 feet up (as of 2017 a potentially dangerous block/flake is immediately right of this bolt) into a left arching corner for 180 feet. It eases you in with lots of good no-hands rests. The last 40 feet is sustained but there is always good gear. This was initially led onsight with no prior cleaning! The white rock that the route finishes on is from a massive shrub being torn out in the winter freeze/thaws!
The next "arch" to the right of the standard route and sweeney's edge. Preferable to use two ropes to rappel.
There is a bolt in the initial slab....otherwise this is a gear eating crack! It is nice to have doubles of cams from fingers to big hands (up to 3"); nuts go in reasonably. Bring plenty of long slings to reduce rope drag from the beginning "ins and outs" of the corner. There is a good foot ledge at the chain anchor 180 feet up. It is possible to rappel with a single 60meter rope to the first (mid-way) anchor on Sweeneys Edge and a second shorter rappel to the ground, but use caution as it is truly 100ft!
