<< Zeta < Stairway to Heaven | Western Slabs > The Chain >>
A good HVS that can feel much harder if you aren't careful with your route-finding.
1) 4b, 18m. Start 4m left of the wall. Climb up a chimney, then move rightwards before heading back left towards an overhanging chimney. Now move right to belay left of the rib.
2) 5a, 30m. Traverse right onto the rib, around a detached block (take care!). Climb about 9m to a high step and weave delicately up to join Western Slabs.
3) 4c, 18m. Move round the arete on the left and climb a thin crack. Pass the steep arete and go right to meet Western Slabs.
