Rockfax Description
30m. Pull over the roof into the right-facing groove, up this then the face to the left to the 3rd Ledge. A short wall leads to the 4th Ledge. The easiest escape from here is to move right to the finish of the Ordinary Route. © Rockfax

Led this to ledge 3 for Paul to do the Flake Finish. The bottom overhang is well protected, the rest of it pretty much non existent (Cam #4 way back in the top break if you want it, take a sling!). Lovely.

Fun climb. I found myself consistently climbing for a few metres above protection, but it was pretty good stuff. It's the furthest I've buried a blue cam into a groove for a while.

good climbing with runouts required to the third ledge. I had planned to finish with The Layback Finish but after taking a good look at the gleaming rock and having my foot slip the first time I tried it I just belayed from the fourth ledge.

Nice climb, finished up the curving crack with lots of unsuccessful jamming, solved by simple laybacking!
