Step onto the wall and climb to the horizontal break. Move up to the RH crack where very good (and final) runners are available. Finish direct using the RH arete.

For HVS i thought this had quite a naughty fall potential before the 1st pro, as you would end up down the pit!Saying that though its still an awesome route.

P1, no I think P2, fluff it up, and its a long drop, however the crux is protected, so if you are a HVS climber should be OK. Watch the swing for your second.

dave led, cefyn seconded, I thirded! I think p1 for this route is pushing it, the top moves are pretty unprotected for the leader and there is a big potential swing into the corner to the left. Should be P2
