This an easy cruise route that mixes a couple of short 5.6 sections with easier 5th class. Good way to the top of the rock.

It starts around the corner to the right of the main upper west face. Up an obvious left facing corner with a 20 foot layback (5.6). Then straight up the obvious line to a gully (5.5). Cross the gully to belay at a tree (4th class). Various routes up and right to just below the summit block (easy 5th class). Traverse left 20 feet and up to top (5.6).


Upper west face of Neptune. Around corner to the right of the main upper west face.

Where is this in relation to "Where Eaglets Dare"? It sounds very similar.
