Description 

The relatively easy first pitch is forgettable, at least when dry. Above that, WOW. It doesn't get much better in the grade. Wild and sustained arete moves on bewildering knob and lieback features.

(EH note: Description and *** rating based only on partial ascent. I was toasted after about 80 feet of the P2 business and bailed off the first chain anchor I could get to. Others give this ****.)


Location 

Just R of Suffering Bagpipes, low on the L arete of the Waterfall wall. Clearly visible in the Suffering Bagpipes beta photo.


Protection 

QD's. A single 60m rope is sufficient for descent.
