An intimidating route with lots of exposure on its second pitch. Start under the perfect groove on the edge of the bay.
1) 4c, 15m. Climb the groove to a hanging stance at the fault-line.
2) 5b, 18m. Move up to the roofs then make an airy traverse left to the arete which is then followed to the top. Intimidating.

Good moves but some what temporary rock on the second pitch

nice route, worthy of a star, with very "amenable" climbing!

Did this again yesterday. No stake at the top (used a rock belay and the stake above thunderball) and a pretty horrible topout.
