15m left of Pedestal is a small buttress - bushwhack around to its left side and you're presented with an excellent crack in a L-facing dihedral. Climb this to a slab & do a delicate traverse across a steepish wall to the left to a corner beneath an overhang. Work up and slightly right through steep broken cracks to a break in the summit headwall. Finishing up either left or right is good. This route is excellent, interesting the whole way, and is eminently protectable. 30m

5 out of 5 stars Great fun, excellent crack practice.

Had a hoot "discovering" this one for myself (its not in Hensley or Hortst) - but 2 ancient pins do exist on this route.
