The first pitch is poorly protected and the second pitch is scary because of two blocks that appear to be loose. Start below the Zig-Zag ledge, to the right of Sweet Fanny Adams.

(1) Climb the face to the big ledge.

(2) Climb up to the left-hand corner of the roof. Pull through and climb the recess to the top.

Ethic: inherited from Monteseel

Climbing is allowed as long as no plants are damaged. No bolting is allowed. Most pegs have been cut. No damaging the rock in anyway. There are people living below so no throwing things off the cliff. There are also people living above the cliff so be respectful.
