Fantastic climbing from start to finish.

Start: Left facing flake-crack 10 metres right of RIP Corner.

  1. 33m (18) Up flake to sloping ledge at 12 metres (manky old PR). Either continue directly to overhang and swing right past it or step right around the arete from the ledge and climb the wall to the lip of the overhang. Be careful with the flake as you move up onto the wall above the overhang and go up to small stance on right. An even smaller stance is available a few metres below.

  2. 24m (18) Beautiful thin corner to small ledge on right. (Pitches 2 and 3 are often combined. Double ropes help.)

  3. 26m (19) Follow obvious traverse line out left into daunting corner. Up corner and past a peg runner. Exit left above overlap and up juggy wall to long ledge below overhang.

  4. 41m (17) Take the steep left-facing corner left of the overhang until it eases and up crack to top.
