<< The Lich < Main Wall Eliminate | Central Wall > The Preter >>
A well-travelled and testing pitch that wanders up to, and past the left side of the prominent triple pointed overhang midway up the crag. Start at a narrow ledge and stunted tree directly below the triple pointed overhang.
Move leftwards for 4m and then climb up to the left end of an 'eyebrow' overhang, large cams. Pull up its left side to a small ledge and then stride right above the overhang into a corner that is bridged to the left side of the triple pointed overhang, peg. Pull over the overhang and follow the slab to the base of a stepped white rib on the left. Follow the rib to a tree belay. Scramble to the top and walk off or abseil.

Good route. I can understand the 'technical' symbol but not the 'sustained' one
