A fine expedition at a reasonable grade. The original line had a strange first pitch starting as for Wombat but this combination is much more logical and at a consistent grade.
1) 5a, 10m. Pitch 1 of Crossbones.
2) 5a, 23m. Traverse easily leftwards for 5m until you can move up to gain a corner up and left. Climb this then move left to finish.
FA. (East Wall) Alan Austin, Brian Evans 1961. They used 1pt of aid on the weird first pitch.

Very nice and a good warm up for Crossbones.
