An outrageously-positioned line that links a series of good holds up the seemingly blank and severely overhanging wall. The climbing is serious in its lower half, and care is required with the protection. Small friends useful. Start on the lower ledges 3m left of the corner of Call to Arms.
Move onto a big ledge at 3m. Make a steep pull up right to a good hold in the pink streak, poor peg up right, and then move leftwards to another peg. Continue up slightly leftwards via good holds to a jug-rail and place a long sling over the rail here for protection. Make a difficult move up and stretch left to a jug below a thin crack-line adorned with a good deal of fixed gear. Tackle the sustained wall on edges, jugs and pockets to a final pull onto an overhung ramp. Finish up the less-steep crack above. Nuts and an iron spike just below the ridge. Not in current guidebook.
