Cue the Rocky music. A big bruising pitch up the finest bit of rock in the valley. Mega-classic and about sport 7c. From the ever-dry ledge under the face, climb into a niche, then follow the searing crack into ever more desperate terrain. At the horizontal crack, swing right for respite in the final section of Easter Island. A direct finish would be nice. With several pieces of fixed and old jammed gear it is nearer E6.

As a clip up probably 7C+. Not bad for a trad route done in 1982!
