|26m. Cue the Rocky music. A big bruising pitch up the finest bit of rock in the valley. Mega-classic and about sport 7c. From the ever-dry ledge under the face, climb into a niche, then follow the searing crack into ever more desperate terrain. At the horizontal crack, swing right for respite in the final section of Easter Island. A direct finish would be nice. With several pieces of fixed and old jammed gear it is nearer E6. © ROCKFAX|

Good choice in the current weird atmospherics. Respect to A Smith on the flash using my bombproof beta:-).
Removed old sling and one stuck wire.

1st rp.Very pleased to have climbed this.Last tried it in 82 just before Ron made his ascent.A poorly organised attempt ending in retreat from the niche,should've had more faith. Superb!
