Description 

Pitch 1: F3 – Clip the first bolt on Learning to Fly then move left to the large groove leading to a sloping terrace. Walk along the terrace and down climb to a bolt belay just above a flat ledge.
Pitch 2: F6c – Step down left off the belay ledge and using goods holds around the arête, charge up the prow above. A good hold concludes the major difficulties and welcome ledge above. A technical groove and traverse leftwards gains a bolt belay below a hanging groove.
Pitch 3: F6c – Climb straight above the belay with a few technical moves to gain a ledge at the third bolt. Mount the foot ledge, clip a bolt and shuffle leftwards to gain a large undercut hold. From here technical moves gain improving holds and a step left into the large corner (shared with From This Moment On). Follow the corner to the top and a short ramp that leads back onto Central Slab. Bolt belay on the slab.
Pitch 4: F4 – Traverse right to the belay of Learning to Fly.
Pitch 5: F5 – Follow the final pitch of Learning to Fly.
FA: Francis Haden, Mario Wild (alternate leads) 16/09/2012. Top pitch climbed 16/12/2012 with Donna Kwok.
