A great route, and the most compelling line on this wall. Whilst there are no stopper moves, the climbing is sustained and involved throughout. Start from the foot of the rock gully by a block belay, about 10m down and left from the start of Red Wall.
1) 4c, 35m. Move left into the sandy groove, and take the easiest line up and left, following the fault-line to a sloping ledge.
2) 5b, 45m. This pitch tackles the continuation of the large sandy fault/chimney/crack. Climb up past a shallow depression, and make a committing move to gain the start of the corner. Continue up this, passing two sloping ledges, and belay on the third which is to the left of the final corner.
3) 4b, 14m. Move back into the main corner and follow a line up this; great care is needed with both rock and protection.
