  start below the first crack-line at the left hand side of the Rolling Stones wall. in the gully. The route climbs the initial slab and then crack, moving right around the small overhang, then following the continuation crack to ledges. From here either continue straight up to belay at ridge or move slightly up and left to finish. Descent: scramble down to the access rope for LCMB and back to foot of climb. Beware of loose rock when topping out and arranging a belay.
