Lovely, balancy climbing that weaves its way up the steepest part of the face. Protection on the crux is from very small wires. Start 10m up the slope from the tree.
27m. Climb to a peg at 12m and then directly to a thin diagonal break. Place some very small wires, then step up onto the break and balance left up a narrow ramp to double pegs. Move slightly left again and then climb up intricately past two more pegs to finish.

There are a pair of pegs at 12m now.

Great route if you like tenuous and sustained slab climbing. Felt hard for E3 especially compared with Blinding Flash, which seemed much less sustained and only marginally harder for a short section.
