Description:© (willmonks)

Good, but not in the same class as the other climbs here. Apparently it should have been called 'Maniac'.

Start: Start as for 'Technical Ecstasy'.

  1. 35m (16) As for 'Technical Ecstasy'. An alternative to the first pitch is to belay on the R about 8m below the original belay and climb directly into the second pitch crack.

  2. 30m (13) Move R to a groove on the far side of the wall and climb the groove to belay 10m below the capping overhang.

  3. 20m (18) Up the slab, keeping just L of arete to a wildly exposed pull through the overhang.
