A neat line seeking out the easiest climbing on the right side of the wall. Start on the grassy slope directly below the crack splitting the upper headwall.

Step left onto a series of small ledges and climb directly up, passing a dubious flake, then right to gain a narrrow ledge. Move right along the ledge to its end then climb the bold wall above on positive holds to a long overlap and leftwards-trending crack. Follow the crack leftwards to its end then pull up on excellent holds before traversing back right. A stiff pull gains the crack in the upper headwall and easier climbing to the top.


Standard rack of wires and cams up to 2". Double ropes are necessary if you want to protect the pitch adequately.


Start on the steep grassy slope, directly beneath the crack splitting the upper headwall.
