Description

UK E4 6a, though many would put it at a hard E3 instead.

Regardless of the grade, this is a stellar route that everyone should do or aspire to do.  This is the climb that can introduce you to the clean and intimidating west wall of the Leap.

While climbable in most tide conditions, the start would be tricky if wet, and can sometimes have seepage.  Hop on at the beginning, climb carefully and get in good pro where you can.  Climb up the grooves and bulges along the most natural line, enjoying some surprisingly good rests. Top out by a large flake, and wander back a little to get to a stake anchor. 

Location

Starts about 30' left of the end of the wall (on the West Wall, opposite the standard ab in)

Protection

Standard rack of wires and cams. There are fixed threads but they can be backed up easily. Belay off stake at top.
