Rockfax Description
The mid-height, right-trending break gives a fine line and climbing. Care is required with some small hollow-sounding flakes when moving up at the end of the traverse. Climb Olympus to a ledge before traversing the break past a good horizontal spike to a narrow corner. Move up the corner to a good nut slot just above and finish up and right on good holds. © Rockfax
