Description 

Amazing crack climbing and face traversing through improbable scenery. Steep and overhanging near the top - the exposure is real!

1. Start directly below trees at 15m - direct up to fist crack and ledges to belay in tree.

2. Climb through tree and traverse horizontal left across the bottom edge of the wide, blank slab until you reach the Fish Finger crack.

3. Up Fish Finger crack, step right onto flaky slab below roof, and traverse trending up and right into base of white corner. Up this corner to belay atop the Guillotine flake. Take care of your ropes against sharp edges.

4. Up the corner, which turns into a chimney. Then jam and undercling left through the hero roof to the final bolted rap anchor. Sweet!

Location 

A line that goes up between Merlin and Caiaphas, and intersects for a short length with Capital Punishment.

Protection 

Double rack, more if you need to aid hard sections.
