Starts to the right of Cramped Thumb. Do not use the ledge system to the right at the start. Follow up a series of small face holds to a dirty grass/thorn covered ledge. Follow up an obvious crack to another small ledge below an overhang. Pull an overhanging crack that is just left of Afterburner to a steep face followed by a large ledge where chains are present.

Descent Options:

Rap or top out.

3 out of 5 stars High

My longest single pitch to date. 60m rope barely made it down from the chains on top. Dirty at parts, scary at parts and pumpy at parts. Impressive once finished but nerve wracking while climbing.
