Rockfax Description
1) 3, 2) 6b+, 3) 6a, 4) A1, 5) 5c, 6) 6a, 7) A1 & 5, 8) A2, 9) A1 & 5c, 10) 6a+, 11) A1 & 5. An old classic of an expedition, popular in days gone by and the original route of the face (1968) predating the other offerings by over 30 years. Devious and committing, it is a masterpiece of route finding! Carry a full rack and some long slings for the aid sections. Pitches 4 and 5 can be done free at around 7a/7a+. The state of the fixed gear isn't currently known. © Rockfax

βeta: A good summer/early Autumn option? Chilly and often wet in Spring. Had several ascents in September 2023 suggesting the fixed gear is still usable.
