[Billet The Kid (E5 6a *), 2 kb]14m. An excellent climb following the short corner and wall to gain the shelf (or much harder the arete - Font 7b). Which ever way you choose, pull up towards the overlap, via a very poor peg and several tricky-to-place wires and from here a powerful sequence leads to the sanctuary of the upper wall. Recently (2014) upgraded to two stars.

Birthday ascent - Franco placed the peg but it flattened so we just left it in as a bit of a joke. Feels quite bold. Starting up the arete is 'out of character' as significantly harder than the upper wall, but please do what you like! Ace route!

Has a very large feel to it and a good crux sequence. Would be a very popular route at Raven's Scar or somewhere, were it not overshadowed by the Sole and Psychosis. 1 Star is probably pretty mean.
