[Monkeyrock on Clawtrack, 3 kb]40m. The wide crack/flake system on the left side of the face is a good climb that requires a lot of large cams and/or nuts. Start at the base of a ramp that rises leftwards to the flake-line. 40m. Climb up the ramp to the flake/crack-line and follow it all the way to the top via some strenuous and committing moves. © ROCKFAX

Some big gear needed but you can get away with smaller pro if you look around. Carried a number 4 camalot up and never used it. The big round pebble I took up off the beach however was very useful. Really enjoyed this.

Made a mistake and started up Lunakhod. Half way up that traversed right across a quartz band onto Clawtrack. About 3/4 of the way up did not have anything big enough to use in the crack, so went old school and wedged a stone to put a sling round. The stone should still be there for others to use, or take out. Also pulled off a hold on the left, which hit Stephen! Traversed the top of the fin and abbed down Fay to recover the gear from a failed attempt at that.

Dave lead. A unique route! I enjoyed it. Though I didn't lead, I felt it is a soft and well-protected VS, as long as the leader carries lots of big guns.
