The combination of the best of two lines gives a technical and exhilarating climb not to be missed. Start at a blank wall with a hand-ledge at head height. Photo on page 298. 15m. Make a hard move to get established on the hand-ledge from where some stretchy moves gain a jug and then the horizontal break. Climb the leftward trending line of overhanging flakes above (good spike-runners) to a final heave over the last bulge to easier ground.
