Much of this climb remains in the shade until mid-afternoon so it can be feasible on a hot day. Running the first two pitches together can keep the belay in the shade until the top.
Despite the daunting appearance a mega-rack isn't required, but make sure you have a couple of bolt hangers and a #4 cam|
|Pitch 1:||25m 12 (consensus from 18 ascents; FA grade: 12)|
|Climb the slab just right of the corner until you can move left onto a large ledge.|
|Pitch 2:||20m 14 (consensus from 19 ascents; FA grade: 14)|
|Follow the main corner for a bit, then the left-hand line to a cosy cave.|
|Pitch 3:||18m 16 (consensus from 19 ascents; FA grade: 16) - 2 bolts|
|Up 4 metres into chimney below roof (old bolt). Traverse out right and move up into corner and another old bolt. On up corner to small stance and two pitons. If you want some shade, traverse left to a cave on the arete.|
|Pitch 4:||32m 16 (consensus from 19 ascents; FA grade: 16) - 1 bolts|
|Fairly sustained (FH) until past the overhang. Easily up slab.|
