Quite good really, but the crux is a little intense. Should be OK now that the dust has cleared.

Start: Start as for 'Incisor'.

  1. 8m (20) (crux) Thin climbing on the R wall, 2 bolts, to a ledge. Large cams for belay.

  2. 25m (18) Balance to bolt and follow shallow cracks, mostly to R of cracks, until the holds R of the cracks develop into a steep arete. Follow arete with increasing ease to easy slab and move diagonally R to abseil anchor for 'Empty Pockets' (40m abseil).
