A classic struggle that is a serious undertaking. Start below the wider of the two face cracks. Tackle the first half of the wide and polished crack either by wedging your way straight up or via the tricky right wall (a very large cam will protect both methods - the climbing is extremely bold without). Continue up the easier crack above to the top. Abseil off or continue up The Buttonhook Route. © Rockfax
