Basically a direct start to Vanguard (but not the E3 6a one in the guidebook). The climbing is reasonable but the start is bold, the rock is suspect in places, and the gear needs working at (friends useful). Start from a flat-topped boulder 3 metres left of Vanguard, and boldly pull onto the wall. Climb straight up to the top of the pinnacle. Abseil off or continue up the upper groove of Vanguard to the top.
