The striking cracks in the towering wall. Sadly the approach pitch is poor but the final crack is worth the effort. Scramble up to a good ledge below a short wall.
1) 5b, 30m. Go up a short easy groove then move left around the arete. Move down slightly to gain the corner on the left. Climb this to a stance and block belay (slings) on the left.
2) 5c, 36m. Move to the left and climb the crack in the corner. Where the crack divides, follow the left branch. At a small overhang, move left then step back right following cracks to the final off-width. Layback or thrutch, it's your choice! © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Awesome route with a big man eating offwidth at the top. First pitch is worth E2 5b with tough moves and average gear. Second is also worth E2 5b up until the off width. There is a rest before the top, and you'll probably want to spend as long as possible on it.
