BETA PHOTO: The route labelled "SOG"


5 pitches of outstanding climbing on sometimes loose rock. Awesome exposure.

Pitch 1 (5.9) - Low angle slab
Pitch 2 (5.11a) - Generally straightforward climbing with a definitive crux pulling through the overlap
Pitch 3 (5.11a/b) - Similar to the previous pitch, but more sustained
Pitch 4 (5.10a) - Climb a large, but decently vegetated flake to small ledge. Traverse right to anchors
Pitch 5 (5.10b) - Continue traversing right, then head straight up


Grey Wall. Approach via the large scree gully.
