Start as for Verandah Buttress to the shelf then continue direct via a short crack and a final l-o-o-o-o-o-ng stretch.
Good gear where its needed, and as the description points out a looooonggg reach at the top.
I agree with Neil Shephard. The gear on this route is fantastic - it's got everything you need. Pretty solid HVS though. Hard 5a/Soft 5b move to get established on the face, and one hell of a delicate longggggggggg reach at the top. Got the old adrenaline flowing........
Could not reach the top from the upside-down jam. Needed to undercut the break. Phew..!!
The description is wrong, from the ledge a couple of powerful and pumpy moves through steep ground lead to a gently sloping break (keep left) Then jam up the crack finally using an upside down jam to reach the last break, which can be undercut for the even longer reach to an easy topout. good moves after the evil start.
Wrong - or just concise??
wrong. the final stretch is not from an upside down jam. it is from an undercut.
There is a large pebble in the break which helps the undercut. I found the hardest bit was the start.
