The original version.
Start: Start up the L-facing corner of a huge flake leaning against the east face of the buttress (crawl through behind the flake from the right).
36m (-) Up the corner then trend R up slab to the base of a short chimney facing R into the gully.
6m (-) Up the chimney. (In Sep 88, Kieran Loughran and Meg Sleeman skipped the pitch 2 chimney by going straight up from the p1 slabs, pulling L onto ledge then up the flake and wall staying R towards the arete (grade 9)).
40m (9) Traverse L, step down, and go a bit further L. One tricky move up then continue straight up easy wall to the Oasis (the big ledge between 2 huge boulders).
27m (-) Traverse L to ledge, then up the short steep crack with good jugs, and up the clean corner above.
10m (-) Short corner then easy finish.
First Ascent: John Fahey, Peter Jackson, 3 Jan 1965
