A fine direct line up the buttress. Move up out of the alcove with difficulty and continue without much respite to join Back in Black at its good hold. Finish up Back in Black. © Rockfax

βeta: The first few metres are height dependent so 7c+ -8a I think. Good and quite pumpy

derico 16 Jun, 2013 Lead RP Amazing,so psyched,by far the hardest moves I've done on a route! Missioned over for a late night session on Sunday. Felt so good to clip the chains, Jimbo crumbled the clipping hold, which now wobbles, so stick clipped 3rd before starting.

ksjs 24 Sep, 2008 TR dnf starting moves still proving very hard; in isolation these should be OK. im either missing something or a hold has come off. better conditions today and fingers not pulp by end. have though improved start sequence so maybe next time? linked a good section after start.
