The front of the Seaward Face is taken centrally by this well-positioned and popular line. Start by negotiating 'The Crevasse' and then traversing 7m to a stance in a small corner.</br>1) 5a, 20m. Move up steeply leftwards through a small overhang to a flake in the wall above and then on up to a horizontal break. From the horizontal break climb up either on the left or right to a good belay ledge.</br>2) 5c, 10m. Above the stance is a corner with a thin black crack in its right wall. Gain the crack, either direct, or from a ledge on the left, and climb it to a ledge and belay. </br>2a) E3 6a, 10m. A good variation up the corner to the left.</br>3) 4a, 20m. Finish up the groove and broken ground above.

In August 2010 there were fulmar fledglings on the ledges on pitch 3. You have been warned!
