Rockfax Description
From above the crux on Route 1, follow the lowest break awkwardly out to the left. Finish easily in a dramatic position, always being careful not to lose a pound of flesh. Wild! © Rockfax

βeta: Is the intention to traverse footless all the way to the sloping nose? Or do you end up standing on the lip curly plate things head first into the jaws?

βeta: Much easier if you're tall enough to reach the foot hold out on the left without leaving the ledge! For an easier but still exciting alternative, pull up and use the top break for the traverse.

βeta: Much harder than the rest of the route, but an entertaining way to finish off in a spectaculator position. Pumpy!
