A tremendous route that is both high in the grade and very sustained. Belay at the base of an intrusion of lighter rock 12m down from the large block in the gully bed.
1) 4b, 27m. Climb up the intrusion for 7m, then move left to a grassy ledge under a corner-line. Climb the rib and corner to a move left onto a small ledge. Move up a slab/rib (with difficulty) to a ledge and belay on the right.
2) 4b, 20m. Make some hard moves up the groove and continue along a rib to a belay at its end.
3) 4b, 18m. Head out right to gain the slab and rib just below a horizontal break. Follow the amazingly positioned slabby rib to a stance at block.
4) 4a, 15m. Move up a crack rightwards for 3m, then climb the slab above on small holds to the top. © Rockfax
