91m, 3 pitches. Blockbuster *** 91m E2 (5c, 4c, 5b)
A good route with an impressive final crack. The headwall on the left of the high prow is split by a leftward-trending crack. The route takes the crack and a series of grooves below. Below the crack at 30m height there is a rightward-facing corner with an inviting wide crack under it. Start at the first crack to the right of the wide crack.
1) 23m (5c). Climb the hand crack with some tricky moves at half height.
2) 33m (4c). Climb the corner above to an overlap at the start of the leftward-facing grooves. Climb this for about 10m and step left onto the ledge.
3) 35m (5b). Step back right into the groove. Climb this until it steepens and when about 5m below the overhang use small holds to swing steeply around the corner to the right, and a good spike. Several steep moves lead to the base of the slanting crack which is followed to the top.

Jon climbed the first pitch clean, I took a rest while learning to jam. I climbed p2 and P3. P3 was tough and I fell/rested twice, great climbing excellent learning on cracks

Amazing. First pitch is sustained e2 5b. Second is a good technical vs groove. Top pitch is just amazing.

Fantastic route, the top pitch has a really airy move around the arete.
