1st Pitch- 50m (photo)/ Represents a classic WI 4 pitch with easy climbing at the start and then the pitch steepens for an aesthetic ride only to lay off again as you reach a rock band hole you must mantle up and over. This rock does not provide a whole lot for holds, just rub those freshly sharpened crampons on some rock. Once through the hole, look for chains to the upper right.
