12m. An exciting direct line, above Flute of Hope's rib and crack. From the top of Flute’s flake climb the wall via a long reach or a short jump from the snapped flake. Ginish with a flourish. Stopping to place a Friend 2.5 above the crux is pumpy but a good idea if you intend to fly.

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.
