A great introduction to this magnificent face for HVS leaders. Start on ledges below the groove. Move 3m left then climb up and pull back right into the groove. Climb this, past various bits of old gear and plenty of good wires, to the ledge at the top. Abseil off or continue for a short pitch (4c) to tick the summit direct from a ledge, or up a groove on the right. The direct start, which is part of Tales of Yankee Power, is about a grade harder. © Rockfax
