64m, 4 pitches. A great route, best left for dry conditions. 1) 4c, 30m. Start at the base of the huge crack that makes the right-hand side of the enormous pinnacle. Traverse left to the arete as soon as possible, and climb it for 14m (possible belay). Climb the steep wall on the left to a scoop and head up and left to a small stance. 2) 5c, 35m. Climb the steep crack above until it reaches an overhang. Turn this with difficulty on the left side and continue straight up for 5m before a step right gains a thin crack. Strenuously climb this then follow a groove on the left to an overhang. Keep trending left across slabs (often wet) to a possible belay. Climb straight up from here for 10m to reach the top of the crag. © ROCKFAX
