Climb the first few meters of First Blood (the 5.6 crack) then move right on a thin flake to the arete. Continue up the slabby arete to where it steepens and the bouldery crux section begins. Thin slab climbing past bolts leads to a move right around the arete onto a vertical wall and an almost footless mantel onto a large shelf. Continue up slabbier rock above to trees and a bolt belay.

It is possible to continue up a second pitch via a mossy slab over a giant detached flake (a few 5.6 moves with one bolt) another 25m or so to reach the ledge below Land Down Under, Exaggerator, Life on a Chain etc.


This route is the right-hand one on the same ledge as Dead Soles and First Blood. Approach up the trail, take the fork marked "Base" and follow fixed lines across ledges to the right-hand bolt belay.

To get down, make two raps - one to the intermediate anchor on First Blood (20m) and one to the base ledge from there (25m).


Gear to 1" and 5? bolts.
