90m, 4 pitches. Follow the diagonal break up and left crossing a few problematic steps, to below the much-photographed corner and belay. Climb the wonderful corner, step left and head up and left up grooves to the summit and belay. Can be done in two full 60m pitches (but have heard of people doing it in four.)

βeta: Cut out all the rope and mallions draped around the crux groove. They had been there since early January! Presumably to facilitate some sort of planned retreat... well not anymore. If you really need to rap off this crag then leave some wires.
