Hard for the grade but well protected. Start at the base of the staircase ramp and then climb the steep salab to the overhanging corner. Move up to the left and climb the criss-crossed overhanging cracks strenuously until a spike is reached. Pull over onto a small ledge and continue to the top on better holds

desperate and powerful moving up the criss-cross crack

A truly desperate route. Had to weight the rope to get a stuck nut out, after leader took a fall & hit the ledge.

Fell off my first ever VS 4c! So it must be at least HVS 5a! You decide. Fair to say gear is reasonable, but if you fall you might deck on ledge, like me. :-) But got it on 2nd attempt, just.

Made it up clean - although with many returns to the good ledge before committing to the crux

A struggle! After an initial attempt on Truescrew Crack threatened to eat my hands, bailed onto this. Lots of up-and-down fiddling in gear before launching into it and finding the thank-god jugs.

Would need a fit more balls to lead the crux everything else ok though, stays wet at the bottom for a while mind!

Nice moves albeit a little strenuous

simoncov 21/Aug/09 Lead dog

First lead fall - just couldn't find the correct right hand hold at the top of the overhanging section. Laura was a bit nervous of the waves at the bottom and struggled on the OH too.
