Great climbing and surprisingly well protected at the grade (E1 5b).

Start at a crystal-filled crack a few meters right of Suspense and Suspension Bridge Arete. Climb this easily to a large ledge, then climb the line of pockets with occasionally poor feet. At a point almost level with the large hole on Suspense, step right to a small footledge. Make a few moves up the face, step back left and follow pocketed cracks to their end near the top of the final corner on Suspension Bridge Arete.

Step left and belay/abseil from a post.


At the left end of the crag, about 2 m right of Suspense


small-med cams, threads, nuts. There is one solid-looking thread at the crux.
