[new mills, 3 kb]16m. Follow the 'giant's staircase' up and left to a mighty tree by awkward moves between good resting ledges. Never as easy as it looks, but always on good holds. © ROCKFAX
***03/08/12 - The large block on the traverse has been tumbled by someone. There is still a fair amount of loose rock/soil around. Route now feels more like an HVD or Severe. 3c/4a ish.***
