Rockfax Description
The blank-looking headwall is the target of this audacious pitch that unfortunately seeps in its mid-section. The chipped holds on the headwall are from an early misguided attempt, not by those involved in the eventual first ascent. Start at the narrow wall right of the overhangs. Fingery and technical moves up the wall reach a lower-off (Barbi Junior, 6c+ to here). Move past the lower-off and then head leftwards until thin pulls up the wall and open groove gain surprisingly good holds on the headwall. Follow the good holds to the top. Also given 7a+. © Rockfax
