Description:

Great exposure up this overhanging wall left of Muldoon. A short technical start traverses right into the overhangs and from here blast off on great holds to top out after 35m or so. Rap off the chains at Muldoon. Sustained at the grade most of the way.

5 out of 5 stars One of the bestsingle pitch routes ever!

This cannot be missed! Tricky on the seconder with the traverse. If the seconder falls after taking gear out before the traverse there's a chance for decking.
