Up the wall passing some bolts to a small roof. Belay 5m above.

32415mYes
 

Head up and left from anchor clipping a couple of old bent pitons then straight up for several metres on minimal gear to a committing 4m traverse right. Head straight up to easier climbing, bomber rock and good times. Clip a couple more old pitons before belaying at a suspect flake with sardine can wedged in behind. An eerie pitch.

42440mYes
 

Head straight up awkward corner continuing up an awesome layback section as it heads off right.
