|Ultimate Eliminate Direct||E3 5c|
|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. Top end E3.|
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. Further gear can be arranged in Gideon. Bear R to top out on the huge bollard.
P2 5b. Climb the wall right of the chimney of CCD. Near the top use the RH arête to make a reachy move onto the final headwall in a magnificent position.
