26m. The spectacular crack line up the leaning wall left of Great Eastern. Traverse the slime, from the left, to a small sycamore tree at the base of the crack. More devious methods have been used to avoid the mire, which never dries. Powerful but technical climbing on layaways, past two dubious pegs, leads to good fingerlocks in the crack, crux. Continue up on face holds and side pulls past two more peg runners to a long move for the ledge, less dynamic for the tall. Traverse the ledge to finish at the top of Great Eastern.
Variation: Sans Oxygen Finish 6c From the ledge, step right and follow a shallow groove back left with considerable difficulty. R. Browner, J. Gillmor. 6.5.2000. (Top-roped prior to ascent).
T. Burke, J. O'Reilly Jun/1994.
