120m, 5 pitches. An interesting and popular climb which takes a line of ramps on the wall above and right of Fiacaill Couloir. Loss of turf means there are some tricky moves (IV,5 under powder) but these become much easier with consolidated snow or a little ice. Start just right of Fiacaill Colouir. Slant right, then go back left to a short wall which leads to the ramps. Follow these to below an overhanging wall. The righthand corner leads into a chimney-cave from which a right traverse arrives at a groove and the ridge.
