90m, 4 pitches. Begin in a niche with two stacked blocks, about 10m left and up from The X-men. The line follows an open corner/crack system and can be reached easily from the An Bealach Runda Ab-in, staying to climber's left.

1) 30m (5a). Head up the stacked blocks to gain access to the double crack in the alcove between columns. At the top of the pillars, step right to gain the throne and first belay.
2) 20m (5c). Step back left into the main crack system and climb sustained vertical cracks and face, belaying on a small obvious ledges on climber’s left.
3) 25m (6a). Continue up the steep thin crack corner system above. The crux takes small wires. Continue with good protection for 20m then step right to join An Bealach Runda for a few metres. Belay at the base of a double crack system created by a flake.
4) 15m (5a) Head straight up, leaving Runda, up the double crack system to the top of the flake which gains a vertical crack and top out.
