A major variation to Trapeze which traverses all the way to Procol Harum. Do Trapeze's traverse, angle up and L to the arete, then traverse straight left until you intersect Procol Harum, then straight to the top. Technically easy for a 19, the business is managing rope drag. Probably a good idea to figure out the line from the ground so that you don't end up on the much harder The Low Down which parallels this pitch.


Same as Trapeze.


Standard Araps pro. Lots of long runners and/or Revolver carabiners.
