<< Giantslayer < Cold Empty Gun  |  Cosa Nostra > Freedom Fighter >>

A varied climb up the centre of the west-facing wall, starting at a groove/ramp just right of Giantslayer. Well protected.
1) 6a, 20m. Ascend the ramp to its top (peg). Make tricky moves to start the crack out right which leads strenuously to a ledge.
2) 5c, 10m. Climb another ramp up left (peg) then pull direct over an exposed bulge to easier ground. Stake belay.

Perhaps only E3 but the gear on the first pitch that protects the crux is quite fiddly and strenuous to place properly. The peg on the top pitch is not in good condition and, although there is some stuff to back it up the rock is quite soft, so I don't recommend falling off the steep moves over the bulge.
