This is one of the climbs that marked the start of a new era of hard climbing at Monteseel. Starts on the ledge two metres to the right of Couchant, below a thin crack in the middle of the face. Climb the thin crack to a rail. Traverse left for one metre to a resting place. Move up slightly right and then directly up the wall to finish up the break at the lip. Gear on the headwall is sparse but good.

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.
