Head left, passing the overlap and continue left until a groove leads back right to a ledge, then a corner and a belay. 3) 4c, 27m. Traverse up and right across the wall to gain the final exposed rib. © ROCKFAX

I lead the two VS pitches (1+3). P1 was incredibly bold for VS. 30 ft off the deck with no pro after a traverse on creaking jugs. Unnerving! P3 was wrong. dried moss anyone?
Wilbur - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/07 with Morgan

got lost on the last pitch as the moves right looked a lot harder than 4c. pro can be a little fiddly and the moves over the bulge don't feel very secure due to the slopy nature of the rock.
