Rockfax Description
One of the great E5s of the Pass. It requires a steady approach and a good eye for gear to make it safe - a large cam is handy. Start by a low diagonal crack in the centre of the wall. Move up over this and step up to the higher leftwards-slanting crack. Follow the crack left to a faint groove and a series of leaning flake/cracks. Move more urgently up these to reach a bold wall and a hand-jamming crack above. Gain the crack with relief if you can jam and continue on to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The excellent route up the centre of the wall on perfectly adequate gear. Start at the base of a very slight groove, move up to a leftward diagonal crack and follow this back to big holds and the aformentioned groove. Climb direct on satisfyingly large holds to a short, wide crack and scamper out left into a large steepening groove. Finish up this. french 6c.
