A glorious, steep and polished corner that slowly narrows until it finishes as a thin flake. The corner is left facing and leans slightly left it's entire length making it a sustained and slightly overhanging lie-back.
The first pitch follows the obvious corner via sustained lie-backing with very little resting along the way. The pitch finishes on a ledge with a two bolt anchor and chains (5.10+)
The second pitch follows the thin corner/flake through more jamming and lie-backing with a tricky transfer to another flake. It finishes at a two bolt anchor


Once arriving at the main wall the route is the obvious corner just to the right, just past lizard run


Doubles of fingers to fists. Two 60m ropes.
