82m, 3 pitches. The first pitch starts with a difficult semi-mantle onto a sloping hold then presses on steeply to the belay. The moves off the belay on the second pitch are difficult and precarious (take care) but lead to lovely open and bold climbing on the left side of the upper wall. A route at the high end of the grade overall.

βeta: P2. run out on 2nd pitch, after the crux. Although climbing is very good.
