A sustained and daring route up the pillar right of 'Wide Eyed' following the thin crack. Start as for `Wide-Eyed' (direct start possible but is escapable) to where it is possible to reach rightwards to a rounded ledge. Climb the thin crack above which is technical and very sustained (good but hard-earned gear) for 20m or so to gain the girdle break. Step right and climb the arete, first on the right slightly then on its left side where bold airy moves in a superb position lead to the top. Micro wires and cams will prove useful.
