Start up Bard's first pitch and make a belay before the rightward ramp heads up to the first belay of Bard. make belay here. Second pitch heads out left around the corner on great holds, then up to the left end of the ledge as for Bard's second belay. Third pitch goes straight up at grade 17 pretty much all the way. Slightly overhanging, with tricky pro but mostly large holds. Fight the pump on a long 40m pitch. Spectacular position!

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic

This is a great climb that doesn't seem to get a heap of attention. The third pitch is amazing and the second is also a VERY great grade 14 pitch with stunning exposure.
