Rockfax Description
A prized pitch that is very sustained but can be adequately protected by a very large number of small wires. Take extra quickdraws. Start near the left edge of the Upper West Face where a shallow groove is capped by a small overhang. Enter the groove from the right and climb to a small overhang. At the small overhang move up and left around the arete. Climb past the right end of a huge roof and then move right with difficulty to join cracks which are followed all the way to the top. Move up steep grass to find a belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Would ignore the guidebook recommendation to ab off the "spike". If you set up off the multiple awesome pieces in the corner of the bay you'll go where you need to be and have a rope close enough to haul out up the vertical grass mud scree.
