Description:

The harder of the two routes on the wall. Expect sustained 5.10 climbing and some aid. Pitch 1: Stand on a crumbly flake to reach a big hole rock. A tricky move right then 3 bolts for direct aid lead to some thin slab climbing. Up the slab and the right side of a flake to a bolt belay at a nice ledge. 5.10b 3pa 30m Pitch 2: Follow bolts up the steep slab to a bolt belay where wall becomes steeper. 5.10b 30m Pitch 3: Move down and right to thin cracks. Aid up the thin crack (possible to free a few moves without too much difficulty) Follow crack as it arches left to join the blocky corner of Labour Days. A1 30m Pitch 4: Follow Labour Days up blocky corner then begin next pitch into the bay but exit via the obvious overhanging crack onto the easy slab above. Follow slab then thinning crack to splendid belay on a sloping ledge. Pitch 5: Traverse left to a steep corner in the middle of the wall, climb this to the end then take a short bolt ladder to belay ledge. 5.9 A1 30m Pitch 6: Go up, tehn traverse right to the base of a left facing corner. Follow this to the top of a finger of rock, get some good pro as the last part is unprotected. 5.10 A0 30m

Descent Options:

Rap down wall or continue up gulley and walk off to the East.
