Description:© (nmonteith)

Obvious line, but the second pitch is ordinary. Improved by finishing up the second pitch of 'Mission Over Tokyo' (i.e. by doing 'Tokyo Connection' instead).

Start: Start in the square orange corner at the right side of the grey slab, about 8m R of 'Atomic Tadpole', on the elevated ledge.

  1. 25m (18) Climb the corner to the roof and traverse left below the roof, crossing 'Atomic Tadpole' to belay on the arete.

  2. 20m (18) Follow the diagonal crack up left through a small overhang to a vague ledge. Step right, climb the arete and exit left at the steepening. Has also been done by continuing from the 'vague ledge' up the vague leftwards diagonal (poor pro) to the arete of the chimney (as shown in the topo above).
