30m. Just about independent, but gets very close to Orcrist. A delicate slab precedes some good, steep, sequency climbing on the headwall. Left of the deep cleft of Thorin is a projecting rib (taken by Trim the Fringe). Start on the left side of the rib, a metre right of a tree. Climb into a scoop and pull steeply up right to an easing of the angle. Step back left and boldly climb the slab, directly above the tree, to a junction with a wide, left-rising crack (Thorin). Step right, place microwires in the headwall, and make steep moves up rightwards to gain good finger jugs just left of a deep groove (Orcrist). Place wires (strenuous); then climb steeply, staying a metre or two left of Orcrist, to a small tree. Move up left of the tree and mount the massive flake/block; then step right around a rib and finish up a narrow slab.

Worth doing. Missed the undercut hold at the crux and got too pumped. Did the moves okay after finding it.

The pull onto the headwall can be protected by 2 micros stacked in a tiny slot (I used a pair of green BD microstoppers).

Perhaps the fingery undercling at the crux should be specifically mentioned.

First lead ascent, after cleaning on abseil and top roping.
