|18m. A well-named climb up the superb, steep wall. The first ascent started up the shallow groove on the right and used a high pre-placed peg runner (with long sling). Later a left-hand start was added, which allowed natural runners on the base of the slab to be placed, and made the peg redundant. The upper wall has since lost an important hold making the route harder. © ROCKFAX|

With the cams on the left, no peg. E8 seems spot on. Wanted to do this route for years!

Put the route together all but one move. Will be back to finish ASAP. Couldn't find any peg at the top and will try it the born slippy way next time.
