Step off the block high on the left onto the overhanging wall, then pull round right onto the face. Technical face climbing up to the big roof with a cruxy move moving right to gain the base of the roof. The wedged block in the roof sounds loose, but was beaten with a hammer and remained intact and is a vital hold at this point. Spectacular bridging at the roof in an amazing position, before traversing left to the arete to a good foothold and rest. Move up and left to gain big underclings and set up for the move over the next roof. 'Layback' off the block on the lip, feet high and a crucial kneebar solve this problem. Continue up the corner with bridging moves before stepping left onto easier ground and up to the anchors. A fantastic climb. 11 bolts.

Start: Climbs the left hand edge of the main wall and tackles some unlikely territory for the grade. Superb climbing. Start on the block up left and bridge across to clip the first bolt, or else stick clip.
