A huge pitch that incorporates some fine climbing, although not without some loose rock in its mid section. Start at a thin crack in the dark crevasse on the landward side of the face.</br>Climb the thin cracks up the bulging lower wall to an easing at 15m. Continue up the face-crack passing a loose section to better climbing and rock where the crack starts to thin.

Not your average lineless climbing-wall-style Sharpnose experience. A big and spectacular line - get a photographer on the descent path for the top section. The start is pretty tricky but the rock in the middle is a bit of a shocker, all very Gogarth. Feels like E3 if it goes to plan but could be E5 if something big comes off especially if your gear is behind it - so E4 average is about right. Very satisfying all the same.
