A devious classic with a bold - but easy - finish. The frustrating (and chipped) initial slab can be ascended in several places at 5a/b. From the ledge, climb through the bulge just to the right of the arete, to another ledge. Step down (low runners) and traverse across the slab to reach its right arete. Follow the right side of this to the top; bold but mild. © Rockfax
