Another quality climb that takes on one of the blankest-looking sections of wall on the face and has a particularly hard sequence at mid-height in a runout situation. Start at the base of a left-trending crack as for Coronary Country.
32m. Climb up the wall directly above the base of the diagonal crack to a break at 10m. Above the break is a discontinuous series of thin cracks and seams. Climb these - low gear - to a crux sequence to just below the next prominent diagonal break. Follow the steep wall above to the top, easier but serious.
