Scramble up grassy ledges to gain the belay. From here, a low juggy flake feature tappers off into a thin seam, offering a few occasional sidepulls and shallow fingers. Follow a tricky sequence up the seam to a rail out right. Finish on thin edges to a slopey top out. A remarkably sustained and thought provoking route, especially given its (very) modest length. Enjoyable as a single pitch at the end of the day, or an alternative start to The Commander.


Just left of the first pitch of The Commander.


6 bolts to chains at Commander belay ledge. A lone belay bolt is at the base of the climb.
