Steady climbing with a bit of a run-out. It remains a good lead although it is often top-roped now, hence the polish. Pull through the bulge just left of the Directissima past a small wire to a thread. Continue past a peg, then join the Directissma below the final groove. Lower-off. © ROCKFAX

Proper onsight. When to crag really early to try it before the crowds arrived. All the insitu gear can be backed up with small wires.
