A traditional solution to the gap right of Tequila which has seen only a handful of ascents. A demanding route which is very difficult to onsight. Start below the large flake on Mortlock's and climb to this. Make a desperate traverse left to clip a bolt then continue directly up with no respite to gain a shallow groove and crucial small nut protection (difficult to place). Finish direct to the belay of Mortlock's.
FA. Simon Nadin, Richard Davies 1984. It was bolted in 1988 and received many ascents at 7b+. The bolts were removed later.

What a trad route! let's hope it never gets rebolted (again) as it's a true Nadin Gem)
