may need pegs and a pen.
1. 60 feet. Go up leftwards using ledges then move rightwards to a cave.
2. 30 feet. 4c. Ascend from the cave, then go right to a steep wall with peg protection and featuring cut holds (somebody bottled out). Move round the arete to a ledge which goes right to a stance.
3. 50 feet. 4a. Go leftwards to reach ledges leading via a corner to the summit, passing an in-situ angle iron on the way. There is a visitors’ book at the top hidden in plastic bags.
Descent is by simultaneous abseil."
