Rockfax Description
A solid E6. The crucial fixed gear is now in very poor condition and is difficult to back up. Start as for Witch Hunt but move right to a ledge. Step up to a small round scoop and then commit to the flake above. Climb this then move leftwards and up to two good threads. Here comes the blind crux - don't be tempted off left onto the good holds. Finish up the groove above. © Rockfax

Hard and not keen on the gear (or lack of), though assured there is more than first appears. Not on my list for a lead!

Really nice route. Felt like a very runout E5. No hard moves. The hex 1 was still there on a tiny bit of cord. Placed gear below this in case it failed since it was starting to look old.

Fantastic. I can still remember there was a crucial Chouinard hex 1 on the crux.

First ascent. Not too bad with crucial horizontal hex four low down. Just like an Indian I climb, offering sacrifice....can human heart survive.
