Description:

Start below a large roof and open book. Climb the open book for 5 metres to clip an old piton. Traverse to the right to bypass the immense roof, clipping another piton and a fixed nut (medium nut placements available). Continue up and traverse left to escape the difficult face moves directly up (direct goes at 5.10ish). Belay by the blocky wall. Warning: there are two partially detached blocks just under the roof marked with X's. The holds on them are very tempting, but traverse on smaller holds under them instead.

Great climb. New anchores at top thanks to HRCA (I think). Anyway who ever installed them Thank You. It makes setup a lot easier.
