Start in the more broken rock left of Ironmongers, and climb up to the left side of the ledge. From the ledge, follow the easy crack as for Ironmongers


Might be some, but it seemed like a lot of loose blocks

I might be reading this description wrong, but I do not believe it is correct...

If I am not mistaken this climb is is a foot to the climbers left of Iron Mongers Super Direct and climbs the face straight up. It stays away from the overhang formed by Lethe and does not cross over Iron Mongers Super Direct and venture anywhere near the vertical crack on Iron Mongers. The top is very very slightly overhanging and as a general rule of thumb... besides the large horizontal crack about 20 feet up, if you can get more then 3/4 of a finger pad on it then you are probably off route. Unfortunitly I did not take a photo, but it is visually distinct from Super Direct due to the fact that it has lichen on it whereas Iron Mongers Super Direct is clean. Pls correct me if I am wrong...

That said, besides being very short it is a fun super technical climb and is definitely worth giving it a shot if balancey technical crimp climbs are your thing. Especially since everything else is usually taken up in the area as well...
