Description 

Start below the double crack system at the far right end of the wall - either start up on the right and traverse left (awkward 5.6) to the left crack or start on the left side of the slab (maybe 5.7), straight up to the left crack. Follow the crack over very easy ground to the crack that splits the small roof. Climb the roof (the crux) and walk back and left to a block/crack system where you can set up a gear anchor. Because of the grotty 5.easy climbing between the start and the roof, no stars. Since MP requires that I give a star rating and 0 stars is not an option, I chose 1 star rather than a bomb, for the tricky start and finishing roof. Walk to the right (south) to descend and turn right at the end of the wall to return to the base.

Location 

In the gully at the far right side of the wall.

Protection 

gear to 2", gear anchor
