35m. Start below a short, rounded wall, on a steep ramp, at the top of the sloping
1) 4c. Bold. Gymnastically climb the wall and arête, to reach a slab that leads to a
tree belay.
2) 5a. Seconds are advised to belay to the left. Falls from the wall, before
reaching the break, have resulted in broken legs: not that I would want to put
you off, or anything...
Climb up to a small flake, a hard move establishes you on this (potential Rock
placement on the left). Use a quartz vein to move up to a horizontal break (other ways
up have been found), and occasional peg. Rock and Friend protection. Relax.
Traverse rightwards across the break, past a hard move, and gain the slab. Amble to belays.

P2 only , after doing p1 of Silken Thread.

Brodes 24/Jun/17 2nd O/S

Seconded P2 only, after leading P1 of Silken thread. I'd glad Charles led, as P2 was pumpy and quite bold. Amazing location though.

Martin did the first pitch across to the belay for Fly on the Wall. Tricky moves beneath the overhang. I then lead 2nd pitch of Fly of the Wall.
