|85m, 3 pitches. Right of Goldfinger there is a stepped ramp-line running left to right up to a point overlooking Noe Gully. This is best seen by standing well over to the right and down from Noe Gully. Belay as for Goldfinger.|
1. 35m Move off right from the belay over to the base of an obvious stepped fault line taken higher up by Goldfinger. Climb up and right into the start of the ramp line. Step right then up and left to then follow the ramp line via a series of steps to an obvious belay ledge.
2. 35m Continue along the ramp-line by a series of ever steepening steps to the crux step, an awkward right-facing corner with an offwidth crack. Pull out right from the top of this and continue until a final pull onto a ledge and belay overlooking Noe Gully.
3. 15m A couple of options can now be taken, however most exciting is to step down and right from the belay onto the left-hand wall of Noe Gully. Make a couple of steep moves directly up the wall to easier ground before a final awkward move to the top.
