Rockfax Description
A fantastic route which is both technical and bold in places. Start as for Suicide Wall Route 2, below a crescent-shaped ledge and move up to it. Take the slab/groove on the left, until you can make a delicate move out onto the arete and arrange some thin gear. Move back right across the groove and onto the steep wall, passing a thread. Power up this wall to gain a ledge, then move left along the ledge to a slabbier rib out left and delicately climb this to another smaller ledge and carry onto the top. © Rockfax
