Description:

Start from the gully in between Olton's Shoulder and Liaison - the smaller rock downhill. This climbs an obvious crack to indistinct wandering on the upper face. The opening crack is stout - Fritz Wiessner resorted to standing on Percy Olton's shoulder on the first ascent, hence the name of the route. Double rope rap from slung blocks on the summit - these were scary last time I climbed the route(years ago, but this route sees little traffic).
