Primal Scream*** E6 6b
[Primal Scream, 3 kb]2 pitches. Despite accusations of improved gear placements, this remains a bold lead for an on-sight ascentionist. Traverses out from the corner of Blind Pew to climb the upper half of the amazing blank face.
Suggested top out description from Tony Stone: "From the horizontal break move up the rightward trending crack on the right for a few metres then traverse left on crimps leading to better holds out left and so to the top."

Probably not the E5 6b suggested within the guide, more like a E6 6a. No hard moves but very, very, VERY bold! Memorable...
