The late Dennis Kemp said that this was one of only two climbs that he had done at 'Arapiles' that he would not consider repeating.

Start: As for Jen's Roof.

  1. 30m (17) Up Jen's Roof for a few metres then up right on black slab to foot of a crack. Up this crack to a stance atop a short chimney. The abseil chain on 'Tremulo' should be accessible from here, not that we're suggesting running away or anything like that.

  2. 15m (-) Step left and climb front of buttress.

  3. 25m (-) Up crest of buttress finishing steeply past gnome.

  4. 5m (-) The crack behind. Rope drag could be a problem.
