95m, 3 pitches. NEW DESCRIPTION BASED ON JON PRESTON INFO. Low in the grade. Start where a small orange slab leads to a break in the overhangs. 1. 30m 4b Climb up through the break and continue diagonally rightward until able to cut back left up a clean slab to a small square ledge (some suspect rock and poor protection). 2. 35m 5b Follow a right-trending ramp-line and groove to a horizontal dyke (much better rock now all the way to the top). Make steep moves up an undercut wall to a good ledge. Climb a steep corner above (crux) to a large sloping ledge. 3. 45m 5a Climb a steep chimney at the back of the ledge and another corner above (possible belay). Follow a dyke line into a deep corner which was originally climbed. Instead traverse left near the top along a small ledge and climb a bold arete to finish.
