Description:The superb second pitch has only two drawbacks. The first is the 10 metre runout above the big ledge to start the second pitch. The second is the possiblity of being knocked off that bit by an abseil rope from above. This was an extremely bold, mossy lead before abseil route went in. Start midway between Auto Da Fe and Gecko below the abseil line.
Pitch 1:45m 17 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Unprotected to bulge at 6 metres. Continue up to the abseil chains, keeping religiously between the other climbs.
Pitch 2:45m 20 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 20)
From just left of chains go boldly up clean streak. At horizontal, step right to tricky moves leading to easier ground. Up to overlap, step left, up overhang and so to top abseil bolts.
