This is the second from the right route in the distinct cave section of the South Wall, and certainly seemed like a one move wonder climb to me. Until I fell on the hard face climbing that's part of ? (.10d) next to it on the shared bolts leading to the top anchor. The middle section of this route is simple, and taking a rest is advisable.

The crux of the route is undoubtedly around the first bolt, and stick clipping this bolt is a good idea. Once over the first roof, climbing is simple, until the last six bolts which are shared with ? (.10d), where the overhanging crimpy face climbing never seems to let up.


10 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor, shared with the .10d to the right.
