The third pitch goes up to and through the recent rockfall area and extreme caution should be exercised.

  1. 25m (22) Veer up left to arete and go up to ledge.

  2. 25m (19) Head up and right and then around arete into second pitch of Fringe-Dweller. Up this to ledge.

  3. 32m (21) Move left and make committing move to a bolt. Continue up wall. Originally finished through a prominent cracked roof (17) to a big ledge but the left side of this roof fell off in the rockfall. Finish up 'Scarface'.
