Fine sustained face climbing through the bulges and thin crack above. Finish direct (maybe a bit loose, but much more satisfying) or traverse off left (along Alcasan). Top end of the grade.

the start is certainly the crux of the matter, passing the bulge to arrive at whopping handholds. Quite reachy to start with.

A superb route with a bit of everything. To keep going until over the bulge is tough at E2!

A great route strenous and well protected at the bulge and easier but bolder above. A brilliant route.

Not loose at all. A brilliant route.

Not loose above traverse of Alcasan. Excellent climbing throughout. 3 stars.

Very little wear on this, compared to many routes at Stoney. Rock still felt grippy even in a light drizzle yesterday! Recommended.
