A good route with a wild finish. Start just right of An Ivory Smile beneath a groove in the bulge above. Another grubby start reaches good holds below and left of the groove line. A hard press move gains the groove which is followed with difficulty to better holds. Climb the ever steepening smooth wall to a crazy campus-board finish to reach the lip of the gorge. A heel hook can make clipping the lower-off easier. Low in the grade.

Re-bolted, re-cleaned and extended to the top of the crag. This is another three star gorge experience with a powerful bulge low down followed by a technical wall and a truly wild super steep finish with a crazy heal hook to clip the new belay. Now worth 7c. A very memorable route!
