Rockfax Description
Very hard moves on the lower wall are followed by steeper stuff above. Start at a shallow 'Y' crack just right of the hand-ledge of Letterbox Wall/Hangover.
From the top of the 'Y' crack make hard moves to the deep horizontal break and continue directly up the steep upper wall to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From a Y crack to the right of letterbox wall make hard technical moves up to the break. Continue with enthusiasm up the steep upper wall to victory.
