A very impressive line taking the centre of the huge black wall and the groove above, bisecting Procrastinating Giant. Reasonable gear and low in the grade.
1) 6b, 20m. A very sustained pitch. Follow the access traverse along to the centre of the wall (old peg). Climb straight up past 3 pegs, moving right at the third to a flake (thread). Attain the overlap above and belay at its right-hand side.
2) 6a, 15m. Climb a steepening corner past old pegs. Near the top roof, swing out right in a dramatic position (peg) to pass the top bulge (peg and thread) to a bolt-belay. Lower-off or top out.
