A wild and exposed initial pitch through the overhangs.
1) 5c, 25m. Gain the flake-line and move right into a corner. Follow this to the overhang and traverse strenuously right to a peg. Make a difficult move to gain the lichen-covered wall above, and then go right to a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 12m. Move up the crack on the right of the belay to a tree. Climb rightwards into an easier groove to finish.

The 'lichen covered wall' makes the last move very hard, closer to 6a than 5c.
