Description 

Another classic pump-fest on the upper wall.

Start just to the right of Arms Race, at some good pockets leading up to a thin, right-trending crack, where cams provide the first protection. Follow the crack, past a peg to a good hold and another peg on the blunt arete. Best advised to shake out here, it's the last chance you'll get!

Power up past a third peg to good holds (possible exit to the right at E4) then move left to clip the fourth and final peg. The crux for most is the final wall of disappointing holds, finishing at a good break then the top.

Normally given a trad grade (E5 6a/b), despite being mostly a clip-up. The pegs are in decent condition at the time of writing, but it's best to check them out before lobbing onto them!

Location 

Start at good pockets just to the right of Arms Race, to the left of some thin roofs.

Protection 

Cams (BD .5,0.75,1 should cover it) for the slot low down then 4 pitons to the top. Double ropes advised. Fixed lower-off at the top.
