Climb the bottom wall of Silica until a step left onto the small pinnacle standing in front of the face can be made. Move up to the base of the right-crack in Sand Gully, step out right to a shallow corner and climb directly to the top; poorly protected

Wasn't sure of the line so eliminated the left wall and crack from the floor, felt a bit stiff this way but still HVS.
