Rockfax Description
A tremendous route. It is a bit eliminate in its lower section, but finishes in a wild position on the headwall. Start up and right of Vector, below a wide corner.
1) 5b, 15m. Climb the groove above to the massive spike on Vector pitch 2  and belay.
2) 5c, 20m. Join Vector and climb it through the Ochre Slab. At its top, pull right round a corner to a ledge. Move up right and climb a hidden crack to a sloping ledge belay below a pod.
3) 6a, 18m. Climb into the hanging pod with difficulty and pull out left at the top. A long reach up gains the crack which is climbed with even more difficulty. Keep going up the crack and another on the right to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the groove to the right of Vector to the spike belay of Vector. Climb the Ochre Slab to its top then move right to a short steep crack leading to a sloping ledge belay under the pod (can be done in 1 pitch). Pull steeply into the pod and at its top exit left to a jug. Pull up the wall past a peg then keep going up easier, but still pumpy cracks.
