BETA PHOTO: Climber on Who Me? Banshee follows the crack just ...

Description 

Climb up to the crack and follow it to it's top. Don't top out on the right here: instead, traverse left past two pitons in a horizontal break, to a point just left of the base of a rib of compact, grey rock. Climb the left side of the rib, with a big move up to a good hold, and a mantel to finish.

Continue a short way up easy ground to a cable anchor and abseil off.

There is a second pitch up the prominent corner to the left at the top-out. This pitch is significantly easier but unprotected and not often climbed.

Location 

About 40m up the ramp, just to the right of the orange streak.

Protection 

A set of nuts and should suffice. There are a couple of placements before the pitons, and another after.
