A popular line that, although well-travelled, is still worthwhile. It is endowed with good gear on its hardest moves at mid-height. Start at a low ledge on the nose of the buttress. Move onto the ledge and work left on ledges for a few metres until it is possible to pick the easiest line up, then move rightwards to below a big overhang. Move right and then step up left to clear the overhang. Continue more easily past a cluster of bolts and finish leftwards. © Rockfax
