| VS 4c|
<< In-Between < Paragon | Beowolf > Alison Rib >>
A memorable climb, its two upper pitches especially containing some great climbing. They are split by an exposed belay. Start at the base of the reddish left-slanting rake.
1) 26m. Climb pleasantly up the rake to a small ledge where it steepens.
2) 4b, 12m. Step up and then pull up right on good holds to a small slanting overhang and make a tricky move past it to a good ledge. Move up the wall into a slabby bay and traverse left to good wire belays in a crack. A great stance.
3) 4c, 20m. Climb the technical crack and corner above to finish.
FA. Dennis Kemp, Nea Morin 2.5.1953
Description for pitch 2 isn't terribly helpful. On pitch 3, the crack isn't technical (straightforward and obvious) but the corner is.
