A silly but fun climb. Wiggle your way up the awkward diagonal gap between the fallen blocks. Make a couple of moves in the chimney above until you can step right onto the face. Traverse right to the middle of the face following the narrow ledge with your hands. When you reach the middle, mantle onto the ledge, and head straight up the face.

The Green Beret variation follows the left arete from the ledge.


The right side of the large fallen blocks that are left of the large overhanging roof. Same start as Nikemares and Air-to-Ground.


Very thin pro on upper face. Suitable trees at top for TR anchors.
