BETA PHOTO: Silent But Deadly - start on the prominent dihedra...


This route is pretty fun. It starts just right of Top of the Pops. This climb is a little run-out but on good holds.

Climb a fun low angle dihedral with hand jamming past wide pods up to a short finger crack and juggy, run-out face above on the arête, easier climbing past a horizontal (purple or green Camelot).

I think it's better to start this route in the clean right facing dihedral (On the Side) just to the right, this is also fun and 5.7 fingers.


A light rack of nuts and cams, fingers to hands with extra fingers. Trad anchor with a variety of options, easy to wrap a boulder also.

Walk down southeast longer or faster down climb the low angle cracks/chimney to the northwest, just to the right of this climb.
