Rockfax Description
Follow the scoop delicately out right to the arete and climb to a ledge (possible belay). Take the hugely-exposed top pitch of Cave Crack to finish, or creep out right at the roof as for the Indirect. © Rockfax

βeta: Final moves out from the roof are wild at the grade (4b). Definitely NOT one of those VS 4bs that should be HS.

βeta: A nice climb, although not a patch on the Indirect (E1) or Cave Crack (HVS). The short second pitch that traverses left just under the roof to the nose is the highlight (4c?), and might be a little too exposed for some! An alternative, much easier finish is off right at 4a/4b.
