40m. Start on leftside of terrace, climbing a steep chimney, then a groove up to a perch on left. Surmount overhanging block, continue to large flake (belay?), then diagonally right to rounded ledge and head straight up to finish.

Victor Ivanov 10/Oct/15 Lead dnf

Repeat ascent felt much tougher than last time... Got stuck on the blank slab unable to locate the "hidden jug". With some headache and deteriorating daylight at the end of the day, it felt a bit too exposed for my liking with an increased risk of error and hardly any pro (rushed) since the overhanging block. Found myself escaping with an airy right traverse excursion on good hand holds onto Central Crack. Not proud of myself ...

Haven't done this route for a while but really enjoyed it. Some quality climbing for the grade. Its harder and bolder if you go right from the top of the big flake but easier and better protected if you go up left before heading right

I thought the first few feet were the crux, steep and awkward. After that, steady with a couple of run out moves after the flake (small cams help). BTW, nothing like the length given in the guidebook. It's just over 25m, say 27.
