This classic is one of the wildest pitches you'll ever do. From the Crow's Nest climb the crack directly up the prow to a small ledge at the edge of the north face and belay. Continue up the crack to a small ceiling and traverse rightwards along a positive flake. The direct version continues straight up from the start of the traverse past old manky bolts at 11+. From the end of the traverse, climb the steep crack (crux) to the lip(exposed) and top out. There is an aid variation which goes out the blank overhang right of the intermediate belay, but the pins are missing, and the bolts have been chopped.

Linked the 2 pitches with 1/2 ropes. The drop drag was moderate.
