Takes a short, pronounced, orange V cleft through the first band of overhangs to the right of 'Skypilot'. The first pitch was led with help from tension on the rope but seconded free.
Tension traverse on pitch 1 eliminated, grade remains at 21.
Start: About 10m from the left hand end of the shattered wall.
33m (21) (crux) Climb up the wall to the short orange V cleft and through this to a rest, then up to next roof for protection and step down left and traverse further left and up to semi-hanging belay of 'Sky Pilot'.
26m (-) Up to top of jamb crack in common with 'Sky Pilot', continue up and right then traverse left about 5m, right under overhang and up and around its righthand end. Continue up groove to belay about 10m above overhang below corner.
16m (-) Continue up corner to top.
First Ascent: J Nelson & R Curtis. alt, 1979
I belayed Jim on pitch 1 on the first ascent. Not convinced that he used tension but rope was fairly tight 'cos he was looking at a big 'swinger'.
