IMHO the nicest of the three face routes.

Cracks and seams (small cams) lead left to a slab, climb this, it's thin past the bolt (crux), then eases at another horizontal, here you can clip the last bolt, a stare up at the anchors while wondering how the heck to get there....thin straight up, easier to the left or right.


Center of the northeast face.


A couple of small cams, 2 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

This was the first route I did in this area - a long time ago, and there was almost always no-one around.

Sept 5 2010, while the rest of the crags were very busy this was deserted - could it be the slabby trad nature of the climbing?

The guidebook shows this following up the diagonal crack off the deck and then moving up from there.
