1) 6c+, 2) 6a+, 3) 6c+, 4) 5a, 5) 5a. Opened ground-up in 1979, this fantastic route is hardly showing its age other than sporting a few more bolts than it had back then! Pitch 1 is a hard warm-up on pure grey stone demanding confident footwork. Pitch 2 runs it out a bit on awesome rock and Pitch 3 is fingery with plenty of bolts. An easy, but atmospheric finish past ancient junipers leads to the top.
