An exciting route with memorable moments. Start to the left of a low overhang just before the base of the crag starts to rise up rightwards.
1) 4c, 27m. Tackle the wall left of the large overhang for 6m, then traverse right to a ledge above it. Continue straight up to a stance below the chockstone of Overhanging Chimney (VS).
2) 5b, 21m. Start up the groove and gain the left arete just below the overlap. Head left, passing the overlap at its narrowest point. Commit to getting over the steepest ground and step left, above a groove leads back right to a ledge. Move right to a corner and a belay.
3) 4c, 27m. Traverse up and right across the wall to gain the final exposed rib.
