<< Axis < Exodus  |  Cruising for a Bruising > Niche Wall >>


Surprisingly exposed and fingery climbing on the upper wall but with good gear. Low in the grade. Start as for Axis.
Gain the ledge above Axis's initial fingery wall and climb the arete on the right to the mid-height break. Move right and pull up into a niche above the break. Reach good flake holds just above and left of the niche and using these step left and then up the wall on small holds via a little crack to the top.
