A great classic, mild at the grade but thrilling. Start as for Billiard Buttress to the deep break then move right for 3m. Step up and right to the blunt arete, balance up to reach a large shallow pocket and use this to gain a scoop and easier rock trending left. Originally led with a single chockstone runner in the big break. The direct start is Back in the Y.M.C.A., f7B+. © Rockfax
