The open corner, capped by a roof at 10m, just right of When Hell Froze Over. Boulder up the corner to the ledge below the roof. It looks intimidating from the ground, but 2 incredible finger locks and a couple huge jugs will see you easily through the left side of the roof. Take a #4 cam or large hex for above the lip. Once past the roof, if the flaring cam slot behind the mini-bush is wet, reach around the pillar to the left to clip a runner to the last bolt on WHFO, as a cam will not hold. Meet and scramble up WHFO from about a metre above the last bolt to the chains. Mint gear! (FA by sbaclimber, 22-04-06)

4 out of 5 stars Possibly the best route at DG

Great climbing, bomber gear. Once you are through the roof, you wonder what all the fuss is about. Great line.
