Varied and spectacular climbing on, for the majority of the route, big holds. Start right of the twin grooves on Banana Flake.
25m. Climb up to a wall and small juggy ridge, then cross an easy rake - on Main Face Climb - and gain a sloping ledge at the base of a right-facing corner. Climb the corner to a ledge and then move right and climb steeply on jugs stepping right near the top.
