Start just right of "Shoskred", layback the flake, then surmount two giant blocks. Follow the chimney and crack straight up then swing right onto the arÍte resisting the temptation to use the main crack of "Cracking-Up", swing back left to a ledge and exit straight up.

A few slightly crumbly bits made this somewhat more scary than it should have been.

Hmm, the rock is shedding a few layers around the crux.

Didn't read the description and used part of the crack at the very top.

Top out a bit loose on the right but good climbing otherwise.

I found this the hardest of the 3 routes in this section. No style points due to going up the chimney sideways and ending up sitting on the flake!

F.A. A surprisingly independent line! Better than its naibouring HVS's?

FA. Nice line picked out by Andy. Some great moves round onto the arete.
