Description:© (secretary)

Fun traversing on superb aesthetic stone. Full set of cams. Has also been done by starting up the unpleasant flakes 10m L of Great Divide (see 16a on topo). You can do a 150m girdle of 'Taipan', via 'The Mint', 'Arabic Mint' and 'Lawrence of Arabia' (the full thing is yet to be done in a single push).

Start: Start just R of Dinosaurs Don't Dyno, on the far right hand end of the elevated ledge. Put your belayer on the wide ledge 6m below the start, so they can see the crux.

  1. 32m (21) Step down from R end of ledge to hand traverse R under large roof, cross Great Divide, and continue traversing R to Seventh Banana's first anchor.

  2. 10m (17) Continue traversing R to Sirocco's first anchor. Rap off (18m).
