An extremely fine and challenging pitch that doesn't let up from the very start. Start below the hand-crack of Oesophagus.Move up twin thin cracks to the overhang and boldly swing up and right along a flake to the arete. Move up the arete, peg on the right, before traversing a short way left to the foot of a wide crack. Power up the crack and headwall past a thread to positive holds and a bolted belay above. Abseil off or finish up easy ground above (as for pitch 2 of Combined Ops). © Rockfax
