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.
