80m, 3 pitches. A fine outing up the back wall of the zawn. Start at the base of the obvious pillar approximately 10m left of T-Rex.

1 15m. 5b. Climbs the obvious pillar to a small overlap. Pull over this into a decomposing groove and follow this to a disappointing stance, old pegs.

2 40m. 6b. Move left into a groove (passing 2 old pegs) and climb up and right onto a hanging slab. Follow this to more old pegs, rest. Weird moves leftwards and upwards bail round an arĂȘte into a groove. Follow this, where angels tread to fear. Upwards and leftwards to join The Janitor Finish, halfway along it's traverse. Belay here.

3 25m. 6a. Climbs the obvious groove above to a deep slot. Traverse recklessly leftwards to a short hanging groove. From the top of this, exit rightwards onto the Dream of White Horses slab. Finish up this with disconcerting difficulty

G.Smith, A.Wainwright 30/Aug/1984.
