Easiest climbing on this section of wall. More importantly it is the driest line when the crag is wet.

A more satisfying ascent. The final moves of Directissima were dry this time and much less harrowing!

some gear in place low down from an abandoned attempt on Contraflow, which was wet. The traverse back right was new - and the only dry exit!
