An excellent pitch


Sustained climbing up a slabby wall that takes a steeper crack to finish. Follow intermittent cracks up the wall, heading slightly right.


This climb starts at the lowest point of the right-hand section of the cliff, up a quartz-streaked wall about 8' right of an obvious corner (Tension).


Well protected by nuts and hexes, if you look around.
