| HVS 5a|
<< C.C. Ordinary < Needle Arete | Fly On The Wall > Silken Thread/Imperialist >>
The top pitch takes the rounded crack in the centre of the upper wall.
1) 4c. Start on the mossy slabs with a wilting small tree at 5m. climb the slab right of the tree to a block beneath a steeper wall with a thin right to left diagonal crack. Follow this and the wall and cracks above to a tree belay (the left tree).
2) 5a. Take the rounded crack on the headwall to a tricky move right. Move up and right to a groove that gains the summit.
