Start just right of the black rock and climb to the break. Traverse right until below the beckoning thin crack, and gains this with difficulty (good gear). Climb to join Main Wall then move out right for a pleasant finale. © ROCKFAX

Nice climb. One sharp move and then an enjoyable romp.
stugreen75 - 2nd O/S - 10/Feb/14 with Will

Had to jump off after placing gear for a bit of a rest. Then back around and up. Enjoyable moves, no stamina for hanging around to place gear with no feet.

Hidden - Lead - 05/Jul/09

fell from the 6a move after tickling the vipers tail (almost decked :S)- stripped the gear, de-pumped and led it clean, which is annoying - very pleasent HVS climbing once established in the viper crack

Thought I was on stretcher wall but didn't start far enough left, ended up following my nose and kinda this route tho I exited straight up after the traverse. lesson learnt read the book even if you think you know were the route goes.
