An excellent and memorable route with a run-out section that will put hairs on your chest! Start below a crack and climb edges up and left, then back right, to reach the first gear in the crack. Follow the crack, sometimes on the wall to the left or right, to gain the pipe. Make bold moves to a shot-hole below a tower, then move left to a groove and follow it easily to a belay on a large flat ledge. Photo on p.§§§. © Rockfax
