Alex following up the dagger.

Description 

Easily recognized by the sharp, knife-like feature at the top, the more recently named Dagger won't cut you short of excitement. This brilliant line makes for a great alternative start to The Standard Route or just simply ran as a quick single pitch. Thin hands/fingers backed by adequate gear and good stances highlight this line. Cruise the start and enjoy the crack as the climbing gradually gets harder. Finish at the dagger and stop at a big ledge.


Location 

This line starts in the left facing corner directly left of The Standard Route. Its the first and cleanest dihedral you encounter on the front face.


Protection 

The Dagger protects easily with a small single rack and medium to large nuts. Set a Belay directly above the finish on a ledge; a single bolt backed by a piece in a bomber crack make the most direct and sensible choice. Continue on here up The Standard Route or rap to the ground off the chains to the right.
