Rockfax Description
When clean this is a superb climb. Start 6m right of the Praying Mantis corner at a rib left of a vegetated corner.
1) 6a, 27m. Climb the rib to a flake then a bald groove and short steep crack to below bulges. Traverse left below the bulges, then up leftwards to the belay and tree at the top of the first pitch of Praying Mantis.
2) 5c, 44m. Traverse up rightwards to a prominent groove and follow it to its end at an overhang. Pull out left and up to a grassy ledge. Continue directly up the corner above and pass the overhang on the right wall to reach a short slab and the top. © Rockfax
