One of the best routes in the valley incorporating sustained climbing in a wild position up a superb natural line. Stand in a long sling on the first bolt to reach a good hold beneath the large undercut flakes. Pull onto the rock and move rightwards to gain a good flake hold. Follow the spectacular line strenuously all the way to the lower-off. 7c+ if the start is climbed free.

Really strenuous and pumpy. Not one to get a flash pump on, so make sure you are warmed up properly. Don't be put off by the aid start, its worth it oncce you get climbing.

Generally ok for grade. Pegs/tat in a bad way! Would trust them with a barge pole, but can be backed up. Dusty as hell when i did it but still good and a tad pumpy!
