Illegal Alien** E3 6a
55m, 3 pitches. A real North Coast adventure steep, stiff and commiting what more could you want! From the ledge at the bottom of the Lotus drop down a further 15 feet to the left looking out. The line goes through the steep roof breaking out to the right, climb the steep wall back leftwards on large fragile holds to respite and a deep breath at the obvious belay ledge. Climb the obvious groove on the left via a hard and commiting pull into it. From here more tricky climbing gains a crack and a niche and finally the belay of the Lotus. Finish up the last pitch of this. Note none of the pegs mentioned in the guide are currently in place making the route feel comminting!

A superb adventure route, all peg are now gone and Bold E4 is nearer the mark (SB)

Scary!! Especially after watching Bruce the kiwi ( the illegal alien) falling off on a previous attempt.
