Description 

An imposing face that is much easier than would first appear. The crux is found in the first two bolts, pulling through to the arete. A balancey technical series of moves leads to a good rest and a cam slot. Above here, what looks to be a blank face reveals large in-cut holds and plenty of protection opportunities.


Location 

Around the corner to the right of "Eminent Front". Start in the chimney that is the route "Wild Thing", then step out on the face to the left locating the small hole and clipping the first bolt. Traverse out to the pod and go up the blunt arete.


Protection 

3 bolts + standard rack. Nuts and .75 cam important. Tree Anchor.
