Rockfax Description
Ridiculously hard and sustained. It can be done in one long pitch but a belay is advised to ease rope drag. Start in the back of the zawn behind a large fallen block, near the base of a diagonal crack as for The Viper.
1) 5b, 12m. Follow Centrefold to below the groove. Move right to a ledge system and a belay on the ledge just below where the Dreams and Screams crack gets really steep.
2) 6a, 40m. Traverse right then head up to a prominent undercut and onto a small ledge. Move right and up into a shallow groove which leads to better holds. Follow jugs rightwards to gain the flying arete. Ignore the pump and race up the arete (before your arms give out) to a slabby finish.
