2 pitches. A long and classic expedition. Start at the base of the face. The lower two pitches need a small rack. If you wish to do the upper section of the route only, it can be reached via pitch 1 of Nirvana. 1) 5, 18m. Climb the wall past some bolts. Wires needed. 2) 4, 23m. Continue up the easiest line to a large belay ledge. Wires needed. 3) 5, 15m. Climb up leftward to the start a crack system. 4) 6a, 24m. The crack to the top. © ROCKFAX
Wander up from the base of the gorge for 2 pitches (wires needed), or gain the stance at the start of the main groove from Nirvana (better, and more usual). From the stance, step left and climb up the twisting grooves, normally in 2 pitches.

approached via the jungle of Nirvana P1 (5! approached that by ab from upper routes) to the start of P3, then couldn't finds any bolts, only a chopped stud, so bailed not knowing the state of the rest of it or having any gear.
