This two pitch climb is on the right side of the Maiden Buttress. Scrambling and some easy fifth class rock take you up to the base of the climb. On pitch 1 (5.10a), a steep finger and hand crack leads up to a short, splitter 5.10 thin finger crack. A very thin, right-facing lieback above is the crux. Pitch 2 (5.9) is a hand to offwidth crack in the back of a flared chimney.


Standard rack, with extra thin gear for pitch 1.
