Thin, delicate, face/slab climbing up past 8 bolts. The bolts gradually peter out as you reach an odd quartz vein that can be followed easily but a little iffily to the top. Very fun climb some call 5.10, some call sustained 5.9 without true crux.


This is on the same face as How Green Was My Valley and Golden Slippers. This one starts right of the tree and right of the obvious dyke. Currently its the last cleaned route on the right of the face. It trends right.


Eight bolts.
