Traversing out from Skiffle on Icarus.

Description 

Start up the twisted chimney taken by Skiffle. At six feet move left onto the steep wall. When possible make a hard sequence of moves up into Fandango Right Hand. Continue moving left into Fandango, then on across the top of Coathanger. When in the corner of Babylon climb down until at mid-height, then continue leftwards passing through Banana to finish on the left of the wall.

Pumpy at the start and nice technical climbing to finish make for a varied route.

Location 

A high right to left traverse of the area.

Protection 

Top Rope.

At least 2 tope ropes need to be setup to protect this climb.
