Twin Ropes are pretty much essential. Just right of ‘Running on Empty’ start behind the flax bushes and just left of a black groove. Climb the steep initial wall (BR) to a hanging groove that backs off after a couple of moves, good wires at the base of the groove. Move up onto a slab (BR) and continue to where the wall steepens (BR). Move up the steep wall to the base of a short steep groove (BR). Hard moves get you into the groove, friend placements in crack at back, (BR) on right wall at top of groove. Move out right into an exposed position on the rib (BR). From a standing position on the rib move up on good holds, but handle with care, friend placement and spike runner. Move left to a bottomless short groove (BR) climb the groove and the rib / arete above past good friend placements and a final bolt runner before summiting out at the top of the crag. Tony Burnell
