Description:

An absolute classic! An arching right hand corner that fades into some improbable looking overhangs. Start 10m left of Smiths Last Stand.

(1) 30m 16: Up the corner crack for 25m past several ledges until the first roof, then a delicate 5m traverse right to belay on the corner of a large ledge (this extends across to Smiths Last Stand).

(2) 25m 16: From the corner, up 2m to the top of the corner, then traverse 20m left across the lip of the wall beneath the second roof until just past the corner. Belay next to large block beneath overhang. "Grade 14 technically, with 2 grades added for psyche value". (3) 5m 8: Easy climb to top.
