[Inverted Staircase., 3 kb]Start under a prominent groove to the right of Double Criss, which has a clean, vertical seam of quartz within it. Climb this until the groove steepens. Make a tricky, committing, reachy move to surmount this (crux). A delightful wall is climbed on a choice of pickets after a few metres of easier climbing.

The move into the final groove is tricky but with some careful thought can be done with some elegance (tanks Al for showing how it's done)
