Description 

As far as I'm aware, there has not yet been a second ascent...

Climb up the pebbly, pockety face just left of a slight water runnel. At the crux just before the slab, you can cheat right a bit. Take a breath and keep it together for the easier, but more spaced-out protection of the slab. Trend slightly left to belay at a small ledge.

Step right into the big pockets and jugs. The face gradually gets more vertical as it comes up to and crosses a diagonal crack. Launch into the slight overhang - keep moving! Overcome a semi-featureless topout and you’ve got yourself the best seat in the house. Rappel the route.

Location 

To get to the route, follow an obvious trail into the brush, then through trees, making directly for the middle of the face. There will be a slight rise on the left side; the route starts below and to the right of this.

Protection 

Titanium bolts
