Start:Start 8 metres right of Heretic, about 33 metres right of Debutante just right of a large tree that has fallen over. Clear initial D.
Description:Another brilliant climb with a desperate crux on the frist pitch followed by an absolutely sublime second pitch. Sharing the top pitch and a half with Heretic doesn't detract from it.
Pitch 1:32m 18 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 18)
Up easy crack then step up and right and up hard groove through overhang. Above go up then left more easily to ledge below main corner.
Pitch 2:40m 17 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Up fantastic corner until it eases at about 24 metres (belay possible). Step right then up for a bit before moving back into the line. Up to a good ledge on the left.
Pitch 3:25m 17 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Up weakness in overhangs above and veer left up easy, poorly protected face to left end of overlap. Now continue as for Heretic up small, bottomless left-facing corner. Steeply up this, dubious rock, then move left and up to a ledge.
Pitch 4:23m 16 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 16)
Up, then slightly left to left-facing corner which leads to the top.
