Start: One of the best climbs on the slab. Scramble up to base of a large flake crack a few metres up right from 'Freedom Crack'. A classic. You have to do it.

  1. 10m Up fist-jam crack and fig branches to long ledge.

  2. 30m (crux) Up flake crack (protection difficult to place) to an overlap, then step delicately left into a sentry box.

  3. 30m Up to thin crack and follow this to top. Tree belay.
