Mantelshelf onto a flat ledge then climb the awkward wide crack above. Laybacking is probably the easiest way into it.


Odd route in three phases, getting onto the first ledge is easy, but getting up into the crack is harder for the tall, I ended up heel hooking the base of the crack and laybacking the right hand edge. Not a fun lead, probably a much easier solo.
Felt harder than other S 4a leads I've done, though maybe not as much as HS 4b

not too good a solo as the crack can be greesey. Not a whole lot of fun at all really
