110m. A modern description to a route of similar quality and difficulty as Groovin' High. Steep and spectacular climbing for the grade.

1. 45m 5b Pitch 1 of Pale Diedre, although the original route started 6m to the right, climbed via a small left-facing corner and joined Pale Diedre 10m up. Belay 5m right of Pale Diedre under the left of two corners.

2. 35m 5b Either climb the left corner or (easier) start up the right and gain the left at mid-height passing the remnants of an ancient rope sling. Move right and climb a wide crack behind a huge flake. Bypass a smaller flake to the right to reach a big left-facing corner. Climb this to half-height, then its right arete to reach a small ledge.

3. 30m 5a Step left and climb a wide square groove which passes between two roofs and leads to easy ground.

Captain Solo 15 May AltLd Excellent and varied climbing, just a pity it doesn't have an independent start from Pale Diedre.
