Rockfax Description
A bold outing that weaves across the impressive buttress. Since the demise of the ancient bolt runner, it is pretty much unprotected where it matters. Start under the arete and climb up and right through the bulge to a slot, then move right to another. Take a deep breath and finish direct. © Rockfax

Al Evans 1977.

βeta: Shunted and then soloed. Glorious rock! Visited in early 90s and didn't think much of the line with a bolt in it. I guess it was an old aid bolt, but definitely better without.

βeta: I dont think we had friends that small in 1977 did we Con? But I'd practised a nut placement before the lead, where you there? Definitely a headpoint, not an on sight for me :-)
