<< Whimper < Argus  |  Fern Crack > Polished Bump >>


An unprotected trip up the buttress left of Fern Crack. Starting left of the crack swarm onto the bulge to where slick friction moves lead left to poor breaks. Some poor pockets enable a swift exit to be made. The start is a popular V7 7A+ which can be extended into the whole route above snowdrifts. The sit-down start is V9 7C.
