Description

From the left hand end of Serpent, follow worn track uphill along the base of the massif for approximately 400m. You will pass the access point for Circus Wall on your right (rope leading up slab). You’ll also pass Bullet-Hard Buttress with its couple of bolted lines. About 50m past this is Shotgun Wall. At the R-hand end of this wall, an arching crackline is found. This is the start of Semi Auto. Continue along to the first pocketed orange streak. This is Pump Action. Walk a little further up onto a raised platform. There is a fixed line on your L down a gully to access other routes.

Easily up slab to high first FH. Carefully clip second FH zigging L then zagging back R to jug at the base of the business (FH). Unlock the first crux to stance with mono pocket and out-of-reach final FH. Now lean into the second crux before a long runout to the anchor.
