Mr. Gibbs starts on a sloping jug on the left side of the overhanging face. Make your way all the way up the arete to the ship's prow and mantle over.

There is a really hard, dynamic, reachy direct sit start to this on a left sloping undercling and the right pinch/crimp on the overhanging face. Two or three big throws on small/sloping holds to a jug.... If anyone wants to give it a go....

Hey darth,
I did this line around 2000 - 2001 but I don't think I was the 1st as it had some signs of being climbed at an earlier date. I can ask around to see if I know any one that may have F.A.'ed this line. And as far as I know.... the direct start that you talk about for this line has not yet been completed. I have feeling you may just be the one for the job. Take care..
