Undercling the left wall and reach high to a pocket on the right wall above to begin. Technical climbing on fantastic rock to jugs above the third bolt (this section is around grade 23). Aid the initial 3 bolts if desired (A0) before heading up the face above the jugs at grade 18 to a broad ledge. Continue rightwards along the ledge and cross over to a nice slab - no pushover here! Now up the groove and step right onto the top of the white pillar. Over the bulge above.

Follows surprisingly good rock all the way to the summit arete. Joining 'Escape From Belsen' at mid height, this line picks up the easy top section of that route to go at a combined grade of 17. Equipper: Steve Carr.

Climb up the featured wall to the intermediate belay below the bulge at grade 17. Commit to the stunning layback in an airy setting! Steve's project that Tom thought had already been climbed.

Unaware that Hudson had climbed this, Steve Carr named this climb Gump’s But-tock. The resemblance to nether regions is obviously striking. The wide upper crack swallows big gear.

Up the corner then traverse right and onto the ledge. Amble over to the wall and up onto the top of a small pillar attached to the wall. Cruxy face moves up to the rings.

Steve found evidence of Hudson’s presence on the top section. A shocker.
