[Concentration., 3 kb]A good direct line right up the middle of the slab. Start 4m right of the arete as for Midnight Cowboy.. 1) 5a, 19m. Climb directly up thin cracks to the apex of the first overlap at 8m. Continue up twin thin cracks above before moving up left to the reddy/brown sloping stance of Midnight Cowboy. Belay on good wires.. 2) 4c, 35m. Move up rightwards through the overlap as for Midnight Cowboy and up to a small overlap. Take the thin line slightly rightwards until the rock becomes broken and vegetated. Finish slightly leftwards with care. Stake belay. © ROCKFAX
