Start on a small ledge about 2m above the water at the base of the pillar. Tackle the first boulder problem through a small roof and onto the overhang to reach slightly better holds. Continue on pinches and pockets before moving right into 'the barrel of the gun'. Here is the famous dynamic lunge from two undercuts to a large and hard-to-stick pocket. From the pocket, continue R via edges to the arete on the landward side of the arch. Follow slopers until you reach the centre of the arch and then onto the top. This line requires time, patience and near superhuman abilities to succeed.
