A worthwhile pitch that is high in the grade. Start below a very thin crack right of the start of Gneiss Gnome. 34m. Climb the crack past a quartz band to a ledge and flake. Move off of the flake and follow a seam and slab to meet a horizontal finger-crack. Finish up the left margin of the slab above and move right to a ledge and flake belay. Scramble off left. © ROCKFAX

Superb stuff. Harder and more sustained that Saxon, but also more escapable. The climbing is just as good but the proximity to Gneiss Gnome detracts a little. Recommended!

Upper section very run-out. Initial crack from ground is dubious and thin

Jo lead it - her first HVS lead after a long break.
masa-alpin - 2nd β - 29/Apr/11 with Jo B, Doug S

Hard. Tricky route finding and technical moves. Much harder than Saxon.
victim of mathematics - 2nd O/S - 26/Apr/11 with crossdressingrodney

Vague line around the crux. Tricky.

Followed Jeremy up something approximating this moving briefly into the corner of Gneiss Gnome half way up then finishing somewhere between the two routes up a loose chossy wall. About VS 4c like this. Some brittle rock low down.
