Rockfax Description
The counter-line to Aviation is a fine but difficult proposition that is high in the grade. Start right of a blank wall below the narrowest point of the overhang.
1) 5c, 14m. Climb to the band of overhangs and use thin flakes to pull onto the wall and then move left to the hanging belay of Aviation.
2) 5c, 22m. Reverse the traverse of Aviation and take the flake at its end to the next bulge. Move right for 3m and make a very hard move up the bulging wall on tiny crystals. Easier climbing above gains the summit of Low Man. © Rockfax

βeta: Ah but the second pitch shouldn't be missed. The Aviation traverse is surprisingly tricky in the opposite direction.

βeta: The first pitch of Rhinoceros makes for a great direct start to Aviation at a higher grade, continuing up the second pitch of Aviation. This makes a great route 'Rhinoation'
