An exciting direct line. Climb the blunt rib on the right-hand side of the face to a flake. Follow this and, from the top of the crack, climb the wall via a long reach or short hop from the snapped flake. Finish with a flourish. Stopping to place a cam above the crux is pumpy but a good idea if you are struggling.

Bloomin' hard 6a move if you're too short to reach the break standing in the lower one. Pumpy monkey.

The friend 2.5 is only essential if you are a big gay bear, all others will press on without and not waste the effort.

Well looks like I am a big gay bear but from the looks of that placement I think there are a lot of us out there. Absolutely brilliant climbing. Crux pull off edge to break was tough and glad I wasn't too short to do it off break. Climbing after break is steady.
