A thought provoking and sustained expedition up and across The Nose to finish up a strenuous crack. Very bold and technical for its time.
1) 80ft 5.8. Up over 2 spikes then up to the left of a big flake. From its top make a right traverse to a small ledge under an overhang.
2) 40ft 5.8. A choice of ways up to the groove on the right of the overhang to a ledge on top of it.
3) 100ft 5.8. Traverse right then up to the infamous mantle move (crux). Then up to a good crack that leads to the finishing cracks.
4) 40ft 5.8. Strenuously up the corner crack!
Start at the lowest point of The Nose and trend diagonally rightwards.
Nuts and cams
The ledge at the top of Pitch 2. Nice hip belay Ma...
What a butt-kick! Marc tackles the last pitch.
