An excellent but imposing route which sees few ascents. Start up Goldfinger. Above the second bolt move slightly right and up a short groove to a good hold and runners. Traverse right to a small roof, a rest and good gear. Pass this via a flake on its left and climb up to the bulges (good cam). Cross these with difficulty to a lower-off.

Superb and on-sightable. Good medium nut before the hand traverse right which is the crux. Good rests and gear make this a good ground up contender.
