A tough aid route. Despite some claims, it hasn't really been free climbed yet. The bolts may be in a poor state of repair.<br/>1) A3, 15m. Start up an expanding flake. Then climb the rurp/birdbeak crack, in black rock, to a bolt belay by 'the Ear'. <br/>2) A2, 25m. Start up loose flakes then follow the crack above to a bolt belay on a small ledge.<br/>3) A2, 45m. Aid climb the broken rock above, using skyhooks and bashies, to reach the final crack. Up this to a bolt belay.
FA. Odd-Roar Wiik, Niels Poulsen 1.1994. Ascent made by headtorch.

We saw a British team free climbing on it in 2002. I think they said they did it free. Do you know that didn't?

There has been a some confusion over this, the current consensus appears to be they started to the right, then crossed Live Aid at the stance before finishing to the left. I sure hope this is right!
