P1 (5.9): Start at the obvious bolts at the beginning of the climb. Continue up a somewhat delicate face (the crux) to a horizontal fissure in the wall. Move left and climb the arete to the belay at a small ledge. P2 (5.8): Move across very low angle slab to an overlap. Climb the overlap (crux) and belay at the bolts. P3 (5.7): Move across low angle slab following bolts to the next belay. P4 (5.10c): Crux! From the belay continue for a few metres across slab. Climb as small overlap and approach the vertical wall. A few difficult moves in the middle of the wall will lead to jugs near the top. Pull over the top and continue left to the belay. P5 (5.10a): Climb the face. P6 (5.9+): Go left making very delicate moves across a slabby face. Go up through a few small overlaps and corners to the belay at a ledge. P7 (5.10a): Follow bolts over low angle slab until you come to a vertical wall. Pull some awkward moves to the top. Belay at one of the two anchors.

Descent Options:

Rappel down the route (50 m rappels).

5 out of 5 stars ~

Great views from the top!!! Great rock quality. Only the last pitch has any loose holds.
