  • Description 

    This route is actually a link up of the first pitch of The Standard Route and the second pitch of Monster Woman (as described in Rossiter). Follow the first pitch of Standard Route, belaying at the top of the ramp. Move through the crux roof of the second pitch of Standard Route (7+). After surmounting the awkward roof, move left toward the left-leaning cracks and dihedrals (8) rather than right as for the Standard Route. Finish by passing the final roof on the left.


    Full set of nuts and cams up to 2.5 Camalot.
