A strange climb weaving around the chimney to the right. Essentially a bad beta version of the chimney. Pull steeply up blocky terrain to start, then continue up the cracked arete to a handjam slot before stepping back into the chimney to finish. A 6a eliminate direct finish is possible.

Felt quite stiff for the 5c warm-up! Lead with first 3 bits of gear insitu. PS Very reminiscent of La Turbie........NOT!
Fraser - Lead β - 05/Jun/11 with Kev

felt hard
KeithAlexander - 2nd β - 2011 with MarkA

Jason led it smoothly. The direct finish is unnecessary but quite doable - avoids going back into the grotty chimney.
Dr Toph - 2nd O/S - 11/Jun/10 with Jason

I didnt see any visions of Monaco, plenty broken glass though, quite nice climbing.
jazzyjackson - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/10 with Henward, Toph

An awesome route, steep to start then eases after the crux; amazing body potions required for the highly angled crux, great gear. Fell on the crux, should have chilled out and taken my time, still hard but got it fine second time. Clean ground up.
