Description:The major corner on the right side of the amazing orange wall. A trad classic, but it needs a bit (heaps!) of gardening, especially the top half. There is a rap anchor at the end of pitch 1. Add style points if you do it in the original fashion - with the rope tied around the waist and a total of only 9 pieces of lead pro.
Pitch 1:20m 19 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 19)
Technical stemming corner with excellent protection. When the greenery gets too much, traverse left to belay ledge and bolt belay (shared with Bentrovarto).
Pitch 2:13m 17 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Up shale corner, step right onto arete and up front of juggy detached pillar to large belay ledge. Can be linked with pitch 1.
Pitch 3:40m 19 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 19)
A long corner which would be amazing if it was clean, but unfortunately it gets increasingly vegetated, it's even got major trees in the last 20m. Top out to good tree belay. Walk 20m straight up hill, up a short section of fixed rope, and 20m more to find the good walking trail. Turn right on this and follow it back to the tourist lookout.
