  1. 20m. Climb the groove as for Entrenched to a good ledge and belay.

  2. 13m. The steep wall on the right is climbed on good holds until a swing can be made onto the slab. Traverse delicately right and down 3m crossing a small corner to a good ledge.

  3. 14m. Follow ledge to stance on Pad-Nag.

  4. 14m. Up onto slab, right to peg on Turdus. Down to good ledge.

  5. 17m. Across to a narrow sloping shelf, delicately around corner to ledge.

  6. 22m. Around to Dihedral Corner, up corner for 5m then right to ledge.

  7. 20m. Up onto sloping platform. Ascend the crack using layaway holds until a lodgement can be made in a small groove. Easily to top.
