Wild positions at the grade. Head up to the overhang and pull out across the roof on massive holds and with good gear. Just above is a grassy ledge. Continue up the face above. Not in current guidebook.

Good route. Arrange gear with some nuts and a cam, then power on out. If your not too pumped a good nut can be arranged mid traverse through the roof. As suggested finish is a bit pants.

Best to belay as for Raven Gully (up and righjt from grassy ledge)and finish up Raven Direct, (bold and very delicate, VS 4c).

Overhang strenuous but well protected. I bottled the unprotected finish to the right though.

Get your cameras ready as this is definately one for the photo album. I attempted this back in 2004 but didn't have the strength for final move out. I'm glad to report a successful and clean attempt on Sunday.

Great climb, one more move than you expect after committing to the overhang. I enjoyed the slab above, delicate but the gear is good.
