A rather intense and sustained outing, which falls short of classic status because of less than perfect rock - face aficionados should not miss it however.

Start at the weakness left of the bolt ladder (same as variation to Jesus Wall Left). A mantle then slightly left to a vertical crack which leads to the horizontal crack (here the routes diverge). Now the fun begins; go up and slightly right to get established on the face above, thin stuff leads to a good hold for hands, then feet. Leave this hold and make a long and lonely break for holds which lead left to the Jesus Wall Left, follow this to a tenuous rest before the headwall, which proves to be the crux - steep bouldery face moves on grainy rock lead to the bottom of the finishing crack - and so to the top.

TR - Same anchor as Jesus Wall Left.

I climbed this in 1986 breaking off lots of loose flakes - nevertheless I've changed it to "Unknown" 'till someone claims an FA.
