Indirect but sustained at the grade. Start below a steep ramp above the first belay on 'Determinant'.

  1. 20 metres - Delicately leftwards along the ramp and up a crack to a cramped belay beneath the overhang. A good pitch.

  2. 18 metres - Traverse right to below a steep corner crack.

  3. 18 metres - Climb the narrowing corner crack past a horizontal break to a ledge. Finish up 'Big Boris'. Some aid was used on this pitch during the first ascent.
