Description:© (kieranl)

Awesome line and climbing. Not many grade 22 leaders flash this so it's bumped up to 23.

Start: Start below the fantastic corner left of 'The Stinger', 6 metres left of the clear initials CC. Faint initials LA.

  1. 20m (18) Corner to stance in chimney

  2. 25m (23) Corner to roof and left past peg to ledge. An alternative pitch, if you are tired of life, is to launch out left at 3m, go 8m diagonally left and then straight up to the belay.

  3. 25m (20) Chimney then corner. Around roof to second ledge.

  4. 30m (-) Move 6m left and up corner. Alternatively, and much easier, climb the wall directly above the belay. Kim Carrigan, Andrew Thomson 10-12-1974.
