Another fine exposed mountain-route with a technical second pitch.
1) 4a, 10m. Fallen Block Crack pitch 1.
2) 5a, 30m. A hold on the right wall gives access to the arete. Climb this for 5m to a ledge then traverse right, passing a thin crack to reach a groove. Climb the groove then move back to the middle of the wall. Trend right to gain a crack leading to a ledge on Fallen Block Crack.
3) 4b, 12m. Traverse left to climb the left wall.
4) 30m. Follow the remaining sections of pitches 4 and 5 of The Black Gates. Not in current guidebook.
