A good route, although best left for drought conditions.
1) 5a, 30m. Start at the base of the huge crack on the right-hand side of the enormous pinnacle. Traverse left to the arete as soon as possible and climb it for 14m (possible belay). Climb the steep wall on the left to a scoop and head up and left to a small stance.
2) 5c, 35m. Climb the steep crack above until it reaches an overhang. Turn this with difficulty on the left and continue straight up for 5m before a step right gains a thin crack. Strenuously climb this, then follow a groove on the left to an overhang. Keep trending left across slabs (often wet) to a possible belay. Climb straight up from here for 10m to reach the top of the crag.
