A stunning route that is the entry-level E5 on this slab, but should not be underestimated. <br/>1) 6a, 30m. Start below the tower. Move up and then left to better holds that lead to the break and gear. Delicately mantel up to the bolt. A hard sequence of moves above this eventually leads to a decent three-finger edge. Beyond this every move gets easier as you run it out to where a mantelshelf leads to the second bolt. Blowing it here requires Usain Bolt as a belayer. Move up and left onto the rainbow, then teeter right to jugs. Ascend to the groove past micro wires and micro cams. Belay on the prow on the left.<br/>2) 5b, 12m. Step right and follow the groove to the top, or take the second pitch of Released from Treatment (p.§§§).
FA. John Redhead, Dave Towse 7.1984
