A fine climb that feels run out at the start if the true line is adhered to. Climb cautiously up the white groove and wall to reach the base of a steep finger-crack. Arrange protection then blast confidently up the crack to a good jug and the top.

The start is a bit of an eliminate (and bold) but the upper section is excellant. Good route.
