55m, 3 pitches. A real North Coast adventure steep, stiff and commiting what more could you want! From the ledge at the bottom of the Lotus drop down a further 15 feet to the left looking out. The line goes through the steep roof breaking out to the right, climb the steep wall back leftwards on large fragile holds to respite and a deep breath at the obvious belay ledge. Climb the obvious groove on the left via a hard and commiting pull into it. From here more tricky climbing gains a crack and a niche and finally the belay of the Lotus. Finish up the last pitch of this. Note none of the pegs mentioned in the guide are currently in place making the route feel comminting!

A superb adventure route, all peg are now gone and Bold E4 is nearer the mark (SB)

What an epic day! Alt leads is a bit naughty but I did lead the top pitch! Took hours all the kit got wet left hanging on the ab rope, ab rope got stuck had to cut it off with my first aid scissors!! Really hard climbing in the groove and very commiting on the first pitch holds all feel like they are about to give way! Superb Day!
