A prized pitch that is very sustained but can be adequately protected by a very large number of small wires. Take extra quickdraws. Start near the left edge of the Upper West Face where a shallow groove is capped by a small overhang. Enter the groove from the right and climb to a small overhang. At the small overhang move up and left around the arete. Climb past the right end of a huge roof and then move right with difficulty to join cracks which are followed all the way to the top. Move up steep grass to find a belay.
Outstanding and steady climbing, reasonably protected with small cams etc but to a scary earth slope finish!
Protection feels 'reasonable' rather than outstanding and there are a lot of committing moves. Absorbing !
