Just below the crux. (c) M.Chrysanthou.

Description 

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!

Location 

Start at the lowest point of The Nose and trend diagonally rightwards.
