Aqua Marina*** 6a+
[Aqua Marina , 2 kb]12m. Brilliant! The best route on the wall, and at a steady grade too. Step off the left-hand end of the lower reef, and follow the breaks to the right edge of the shallow overhang. Gain the big thread in the left edge of the groove above, and follow the groove on big holds up to the ramp of Pinnacle Traverse. Follow that feature diagonally leftwards (easy) to the saddle by the pinnacle.
Variation finish (original version) 25m S2 6a The route can be continued far less safely by stepping left and going over the bulge to gain a sinuous crack. Finish up the broken wall.

Soft for 6a+? Be careful on the top-out, go the wrong way and you end up in loose death rock...
