A wonderful adventure spiralling across some impressive terrain with tremendous exposure on P1. Not a good route for complete novices to second.</br>1) 20m. From the base of the sloping ledge under Cenotaph Corner, climb polished flakes up and then leftwards until an airy step down (small threads to protect the second) reaches a ledge on the arete. From here move left and up to reach the ledge known as The Forest - usually a congested belay stance.</br>2) 22m. Climb up left to the steep crack. Pull up this to a ledge and climb the easier slab on the left to a sloping belay ledge.</br>3) 25m. The wide crack gives access to an easy slab. Walk along this and ascend a large groove on the right to finish.
