A hard pitch up the very centre of the face. Start in the centre of the wall below a thin left-trending crack.
35m. Climb up to the crack and follow it with difficulty to an easing where it terminates at the bottom of a quartz-flecked right-leading ramp. Move up the ramp to a peg and climb the fingery wall above past another peg to the top.

Fingery & hard low down, technical & balancey & fingery high up. Top peg has a worrying set of cracks and bent in half at the eye when I stood on it while seconding, wouldn't fancy trusting it for much more than a body weight slump...

A superb route! The pegs were in a right state when I did this in 2006! the grade seamed about right unlike other routes here that seamed a bit soft.
