<< Surprise Attack < Ambush at Bear Creek | The Lure of the Sea > The Shining >>
This interesting route follows the right-hand wall of the Surprise Attack corner finishing in a good position on the large blunt arete.
1) 5b, 12m. Climb straight up from the starting block of Surprise Attack, via a groove, to a belay on the break.
2) 6a, 32m. Climb boldly straight up above the stance to a point 5m below the roof. Traverse left to a crack and pull through the roof just right of Surprise Attack. Tiptoe rightwards above the roof and climb a thin flake crack on the left-hand side of the arete. From the next break move up the arete above to the top.
