The elegant scoops in the right-hand side of the wall succumb to technical bridging. Descent is awkward - best continue upwards to find a substantial tree to abseil from.

The tree is a hollow death trap as of summer 2003. The necessary topout is unpleasantly collapsing as well. Shame because the bottom 2/3rds is very good.

Failed to do this - seemed a very dodgy proposition protection-wise. Very hard/reachy to place blind wire to protect first moves into scoop, then very pumpy finding and placing enough disappointing RPs for the next bit - too pumpy for me, had to down-aid. Not fun despite it's relatively appealing look.
