[Mascara, 2 kb]A strong line that provides a fine challenge. Start at a short clean-cut corner left of the main leaning-corner. Photo on page 283. 20m. Move up the corner to the base of the main corner, then follow this to just below the large overhang. Swing right on a thin horizontal crack, around the arete, to a corner. Follow the corner and cracks to a steep finish. © ROCKFAX

My first VS lead. Love this route, it's great fun and I flowed right up it except for the top out - I was fighting the rope for the last move because at some point near the end, the lower rope had dropped into a crack on the side of the ledge that makes the crux. Watch out for that!

First lead of the day. Awesome climbing, bit damp at the very bottom, but the rest was very dry for 10am. Stepping out was exposed and strenuous, but fun all the same- placing a hex half way across making it all the more tricky.
