67m, 3 pitches. Classic route, and the only Whillans route on the East Buttress. Some speculate that the reason it's so undeservedly unpopular is due to it famously spitting the hard man off it!

1. 30m(5a)An immense groove which unfortunately suffers badly from seepage. If this is the case then back and footing is difficult to execute.
2. 28m(5a) Nice contrasting delicate climbing.
3. 9m(4c) Short, powerful and enjoyable.
