33m, 2 pitches. A fine expedition at a reasonable grade. The original line had a strange first pitch starting as for Wombat but this combination is much more logical and at a consistent grade. 1) 5a, 10m. Pitch 1 of Crossbones. 2) 5a, 23m. Traverse easily leftwards for 5m until you can move up to gain a corner up and left. Climb this then move left to finish. © ROCKFAX
FA. (East Wall) Alan Austin, Brian Evans 1961. They used 1pt of aid on the weird first pitch.
