A direct line up the wall to the right of If Camels Could Climb. Start beneath, and slightly to the left of the tree at the end of the Pendulum traverse.

Climb directly up the broken face through a series of small roofs, passing to the right of a stunted bush. Break onto the face one metre right of the peg and then up the face past the huge flake.

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.
