Description:

To approach, traverse north along the base of the wall from Apron Strings until an obvious ramp cuts back to the right, just downhill of Seasoned in the Sun. Traverse out exposed ledges, at one point pulling on a chain to get up a steep slab. Keep traversing out right to the last bolted route at the right hand end. There is a comfortable belay ledge with a 2 bolt belay at the start of the route.

Runout face climbing.

Pitch 1: 5.7 Face climb past 3 bolts in 40m. Bolted belay.

Pitch 2: 5.8 Continue up and left and finish at a bolt belay below the roof. Slightly less runout than the first.

Three 60m double rope rappels will get you back to the trail.
