26m. Another wandering and intimidating classic on which care is required to protect the second adequately. Climb to the top of the pillar then the groove above until its is possible (essential) to head left to the first of a series of ledges. Move left to a peg belay. Move up and left to more ledges then follow these back right to an exposed exit (3b). © ROCKFAX
