Description 

This route climbs the steep prow towards the left end of the crag.

Clip the first bolt from the ground, then start up on the left to reach a sloping shelf that allows you to move right and reach the 2nd bolt. Fun moves on positive holds gains a good hold next to the 3rd bolt.

Make a powerful sequence of moves up to the 3rd bolt then commit to a wild sequence before the 4th bolt can be clipped. With the bolt clipped move more easily up to the anchors.

A steep and powerful route.

Location 

Left end of the wall.

Protection 

5 bolts, double ring anchors
