UKC Logbook Description
The open wall to the right of Antarctica gained via a bold and airy traverse up onto it. Nowhere overly technical but intimidating for the grade.

Strart from a small ledge on Antarctica about 6m above high tide line. After a further 9m up Antarctica a hand traverse line leads out onto the right wall. Swing along this to its end and then climb boldly rightwards up the wall via a series of ledges. From the top of these, make a hard move to stand up and then step left and go straight up the wall to a break (thread). Step right and then up onto a flake with a ledge above. Finish direct up the slab (thread).

FA. G.Gibson 26/Apr/1986.
