Up the via ferrata then traverse leftwards until reaching the chain. Pull along this to the second short chain to the ledge. Technical and powerful face climbing above then out right to the corner. Cruxy move straight up then traverse left onto a broad ledge. Now up the fractured wall to a spacious ledge with a ring belay.

Delicate slab climbing up to the right and then around the corner leftwards to the upper ring belay at the very top of the wall. Take care with the sharp edge when rappeling. 30 metres to the ground.

Up the via ferrata and traverse leftwards until reaching the fixed chain. Along these (two) until the ledge at the base of Wall Street.

Fantastic climbing and exposure.
