An intricate line combined with superb positions and rock. The second pitch is bold. Start at a small slab that is below a crack with a twisted tree root in it.
1) 4b, 10m. Climb the slab and crack to a stance.
2) 4c, 18m. Climb the groove left of the black corner and after 5m as it narrows move left around the arete to a slab. Climb diagonally up left (little protection) to a belay on the edge of the slab at an overlap.
3) 4b, 20m. Move up the overlaps on the arete and then head rightwards up a crack-line to the top. © Rockfax
