Rockfax Description
A f6A+ boulder problem start leads to a ledge. An awkward and scary move gains a thin hanging crack, leading to the top. It is still no pushover. © Rockfax

Graeme Hammond 28 Apr, 2013 Lead rpt Direct/left start today, (previously done right hand start as left was wet but bailed on the top as the snow melt was too bad 09/Apr/13) Top crack is no push over either. Good route worth a couple of stars as the BMC 2010 guide suggests.

Misha 17 Apr, 2010 Lead RP Bouldered out the bottom section and got it on the fourth go, following the left hand variation. A suspect cam #2 in the break just left of the crack provided some reassurance for the precarious moves to gain the crack. Nice finish up the crack above a couple of bomber friends. Good, varied route, worth a couple of stars.
