Rockfax Description
A tremendous top pitch. Start at twin short cracks in a corner right of Eve's slab.
1) 5a, 12m. Climb the cracks to a belay on blocks below a steep black corner.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the wall right of the dark corner then left to a crack that leads to a prominent small tree. Continue behind the tree to a small corner. Then move up left and finish up the wall on good holds. The original finish moved right from the small tree on pitch 2 to join and finish up Crunchy Frog. © Rockfax
