<< West Face Direct < South Face Direct | Aerial > Caliban >>
A long line that has a very traditional feel to it, and is a little dirty in places. Start at the toe of the ramp at the end of a seawater-filled trench.</br>1) 20m. Climb the intimidating right-trending ramp and crack to a good ledge and spike belay at its right-hand end (care is needed to protect the second on this pitch).</br>2) 12m. Ascend the large flake rightwards to its top and then work up the slab above it to a stance next to a large crack/corner.</br>3) 14m. Move right to a crack and climb it to a break. Step right to another wider crack and climb its left wall to a ledge and belay on blocks.</br>4) 10m. Climb a short crack to a horizontal break, traverse left to a ledge and finish up the corner-crack above it.
