<< The Axe < Octo | The Hand Traverse > Left Edge >>
A great route which is best used to finish a route on East Buttress. Start below the groove, right of the arete right of Octo.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb the groove then traverse left towards the arete. Move up (old peg) onto the arete then make hard moves up. Traverse left to the base of another groove and move up to a belay.
2) 8m. Climb easily up then left to a stance above Octo. Scramble off right or, better, tackle the next route.....
