Starting from the TRex pitch one belay anchors follow a fixed line easily to the left to the belay anchors for The Far Side. Trend up and left over a series of overlaps and a groove. Proper body positioning eases the difficulty of the moves to the intermediate abseil rings (crux). Continue over a short, easy slab section to satisfying layback moves on a vertical block finish. Enjoy great views of Lion Rock in profile. With a 70-meter rope one can abseil directly to the bottom of the climb; if using a shorter rope it is necessary to use the intermediate abseil rings and do 2 abseils to return to the base of The Far Side.
