13m. A varied and intricate route that starts below a small left facing flake. Rock onto the top of the flake and clip the thread on World In Harmony, move left to a threaded peg and a good flake hold. A long move up and right gains a rounded ledge and second thread. Finish directly through the roof.

Got toasted on this route today. Ok its above my limit but the reliance on the 20 year thread (on A world in harmony) almost impossible to clip from the line then crux traverse? to 20 year peg (facing slightly downwards) then no gear for about 15 feet seems a bit pushy. This is clearly 3 star climbing with 1 star gear. It also seems unclimbed for some time. Anyone done it recently?
