How the Mighty Fall

Unusual climbing on large sloping holds gains a heart-stopping finish. Start 2m right of the arete.
Move up and right to stand on a good ledge. Head left into a cramped niche and pull out insecurely on slopers. More steep moves gain a ledge and a brief breather. Climb the final wall on pockets and hard to spot finger-edges. Lower-off just above.

Funny climbing - hard to onsight but easy once you know where the holds are...

Good route, if you like slopers, slopers and a few more slopers.
It is actually really good climbing, just a shock after so much crimping recently on Portland.
Save something for the last few moves!!
