Description 

This is a poor climb, with an unaesthetic crux section down low, then 3rd and 4th class scrambling up a long, low angle chimney. However, it is a very useful way of getting up to the Godzilla and Sunkist faces, and can be used as a descent after routes such as The Shadow.

As the name may suggest, this climb really is nothing more than an easy way to get up to, or down from, some of the upper routes like those found on (p) Godzilla Face and (q) Sunkist Face. There is one bothersome move at the bottom afterwhich a third class scramble ensues. The bottom section is also done to access Delila and Season's End.
