Description:

Start at the belay ledge top and left of Pintle start. Tough lay back crux start to get off ledge but can bridge between R crack and L arete around 3m. Medium nuts and small cams protect start but become dubious placements as climb continues. Last secure trad placement about half way, #4 nut under left crack. Very run out top half with 1 BR top R of flake before arete flattens to top. Medium nuts and thread in back wall at top for belay. Ring bolt to rap down R to final pitch, or L and trought very tight squeeze
