BETA PHOTO: Arms Are For Hugging
At the begining of the Elsmere area, near ground level there is a boulder with a sloping arete ( looks a bit like an elephant's trunk ). The route steps out onto the blunt arete and squeezes its way up from there. The technical crux moves are very well protected. As for beta, the name says it all.
Four bolts to a 2 bolts anchor. One of the anchors has a loose nut, a few turns with a wrench would do it some good.
A great climb, but not for the faint of heart...
