Sam Stephens on the FA of "Braveheart" (...

Description 

Braveheart:

This thing is terrifying, huge, and so so good... Once you move past the upper 1/3, you have to finish.

Locate the large, prominent triangle/pyramid type feature on the front, massive face. there are two opposite ramps that make either side of the triangle/pyramid... this line climbs the left side ramp.

Start low on the massive bucket jug at the left of the left facing ramp. scale up the left side via the crack system. The feet make the low crux as you work up the ramp.

Reach the juggy top platform (avoid the obvious loose block lodged in the platform. I probably wouldnt pop out, but its not necessary to use. Just avoid it). Once at the platform, make a balancy mantle on the small ledge at about 15' off the deck. make a scary reach to the upper ledge overhead.

Commit to pressing over the next ledge and mantling up onto this as well... reach up to the next overhead jug at the top. stand up and press over this at about 30' up...
