Description:

To the left of the Snaz. Many people opt to climb five pitches and rappel down the Snaz, but the whole route goes to the top with some cruxy 5.10 face climbing with some runout potential. Sunny; get an early start or bake in the sun...

4th classed easy first pitch Linked the belay from the owl cove to top of the hands pitched better to move the belay to under the the splitter dihedral to diagonaling hand crack. Take more than 1 BD#2. or walkit risking big fall potential.

Great route; pitch 3 (2nd above big ledge) is especially fantastic. We rapped after 5 pitches, avoiding the final weird 5.10 face pitch. This was due to my hangover and also the fact that of the 4 or so apparent ways to go, we had no idea which one to take, so we basically chickened out.
Oh, and pitch 5, the overhanging handcrack, has good jams but is a wee bit strenuous for the 10a rating!
