Steep and intricate, this classic linewill test your imagination! Start just right of tree on face to the left of the Grafenburg/Diddler face and head up and slightly left on horizontals then back up and right aiming for short left facing corner. Climb corner and short handcrack and finish directly up face above. Top out cleaned late May '07.

Descent Options:

Rap from tree on adjacent face near Diddler

5 out of 5 stars Excellent

Fun, demanding face climbing on trad gear. The gear is good and where you need it. The climbing is sustained, with a tough crux.
