Rockfax Description
A slippery classic. Start below the steep arete and climb up and right to a good ledge. Use the deep horizontal crack to aid a shuffling traverse out to the left to gain the final easier slab. © Rockfax

FA. Bert Smith 1934.

βeta: I think if you were pushing your grade on this route it would be amazing. If it is well within your ability it is good but a bit of a one move wonder.
