45m, 2 pitches. An improved direct version of the original route to give a sustained climb of great character and an airy climax. It has 4 metres of new climbing on the arete.
P1 5c. Climb CCSD and step left onto the tree on CC Direct. Make tenuous moves up the arete ending at good holds and a small wire on the microgranite band. Continue to belay on the huge bollard.
P2 5b. Climb the arete and wall right of the chimney of CCD. Continue up the face with a reachy move onto the headwall in a magnificent position.

Shared leads with Nick Hancock in 1986 on the original line which traversed out from CC Direct to join the arete half way up. The Direct version improves the line with more independent climbing. Cleaned and worked on a shunt some weeks before the FA. Kafoozalem - Lead RP - 06/Jun/11
