Variations (left to right) - Starting up a polished wall and hand crack, VS 4c. A left-slanting crack, S 4a. A short wall with a thin seam on its right side that can be climbed on good holds at Diff.
2) 35m. Climb the blunt buttress on generally good holds taking the easiest line. Belay on a large grassy terrace.
3) 10m. Walk back to the right side of the continuation wall.

βeta: Climbed as a four, Lee & I introducing our wives to roped climbing. Great route, polished yes in places but can be avoided if wanted. Three good nut placements at top belay. Think me& Lee enjoyed it more than the girls lol

βeta: not a lot of placement options on the "glassy" belay at the top. generally should be fine if there isn't any other traffic at the top.

βeta: Lovely day. Last climbed MFB over 20 years ago. New first pitch and first time up the final wall. Both feel harder than the rest of the route.
