A classic of the crag and Lukenya - it takes a direct line up the center of the face, to the left of the overhangs. The position and movement are incredible, but bring your small gear and your lead head.


Start in the center of the face, among the sea of slabby plates and jugs. Directly up, then trend right past a flake to a quartz-hole. Traverse left and up, aiming for the first bolt as the wall becomes vertical. Straight up past two more bolts.


Three widely spaced bolts and a few nuts/cams/tricams.
