A long pitch that keeps coming at you to the final move. Start at a bolt belay. Move up and left to gain a crack/break. Follow this rightwards past small wires and a bolt to gain the vertical crack on the right. Follow this past another bolt, to a position about 3m below a third bolt. Place a wire below this and traverse left for 3m past a small cam-slot to gain the base of a steep flake/groove. Climb this on good holds to a triangular ledge, with a bolt on the right. Move right past the bolt and head up past another bolt, crux, to gain a diagonal crack above. Head more-or-less direct to the top. The belay bolts are a little hidden. © Rockfax
