From just right of the memorial, climb the steep jamming crack to a triangular niche then follow the thinner finger-crack (the one to the right with an ancient thread may also be found of use), to reach better holds and one more strenuous pull to easy ground. Traverse carefully left and up to reach the stance. © ROCKFAX
