Bold and precarious. From the right rib of the cave boulder up and right to a small ledge from where scary balance moves on the left lead to better holds and a rapid exit to the right.

brilliant route, but scary! not advisable as a first E3. it's quite hard to get the gear in the undercut, but once its in, the move to the ledge is ok. from there its very lonely up to the next break, and falling off the last move (a big reach) would have devastating consequences!

Fantastic route which is definately not climbed enough despite 3 stars. Nice variation of moves from strong moves to get on to the ledge and then balance needed do crux and complete route! Be prepared for the boldness, not for the faint hearted.
