12m. One of the best routes in the valley incorporating sustained climbing in a wild position following a superb natural line. Stand in a four foot sling on the first bolt to reach a good hold beneath the large undercut flakes. Pull onto the rock and move rightwards to gain a good flake hold beneath another bolt. Move up to the undercut flakes above, and follow these strenuously rightwards passing a peg and threaded peg to reach the sanctuary of a good rest beneath the roof, peg. Traverse rightwards and make a committing blind move into the rounded flake line. Move left and continue up the wall to reach a line of good holds that can be followed rightwards to the Private Idaho lower-off.

Really strenuous and pumpy. Not one to get a flash pump on, so make sure you are warmed up properly. Don't be put off by the aid start, its worth it oncce you get climbing.

Generally ok for grade. Pegs/tat in a bad way! Would trust them with a barge pole, but can be backed up. Dusty as hell when i did it but still good and a tad pumpy!
