Start up the corner/arete. Finish up the corner/arete past two bolts.
Variation (easier): Start on Brass Monkey face, then move right to the arete and bolts.

(One print guidebook gives the name of this route as, "5.10b")


On the arete/corner at the Right end of the wall with Flamer and Great Expectations. Left side of the chimney which is at the Left end of the Gray Face wall.


Two bolts, but the first bolt is a long ways up. The landing for bouldering the starting sequence is not so good -- alternative is the Brass Monkey start on the face, then move Right to the arete.

Top-Rope: Setting up top anchor for Top Rope requires long slings or short static line (perhaps also some Trad gear?)
