A swerving line that finishes boldly up the headwall of the cliff. Start on the huge boulder that rests against the base of the right-hand side of the crag..
1) 4c, 23m. Move up the wall to a horizontal break and climb leftwards along a crack to an area of quartz. Move up to the corner and follow it to a stance and belay below an overhang..
2) 5a, 18m. Move rightwards to clear the overhang and gain the headwall. Move up rightwards towards the corner of Thane before climbing back slightly left and boldly ascending the wall to the top.
