A hidden gem which combines parts of Holloway and Crocodillo to make one long direct second pitch. Be warned, save some gas for the top crack!
1) 4a, 20m. Climb the rib leading up to the steep front face of the pinnacle to a belay in a groove on a spike.
2) 5b, 30m. Head up right to the base of a steep wall. Move up and left aiming for a good but loose hold on the left arete. Follow the arete on its right wall until you can traverse across to the right edge just below the top of the pinnacle. From the top of the pinnacle head up towards a niche and move left over steep ground on good holds to a sloping ledge. Move up a crack to another niche below a steep crack. Battle up the final steep crack to a belay in the trees.
