The original start diverts off "Buffy the Vampire Layer, 20" at the second bolt. The direct start begins at a crack near ground level, a little to the right of the dihedral. Climb the crack, move left under the block then into the dihedral to good holds and bridging. Be careful of the jumble of keyed blocks to the right. Place good pro goes in the crack as it tends right, or clip the bolt on line to the left. This is the last pro for 4+ meters. Go up through the notch on good holds, then aim for the anchors. Pro is interesting, climbing is better than it looks.

The trad lines here always seem like epics. A good line to break out the micro cams and practice equalising two pieces of pro.

good climbing, mostly good pro, would recommend clipping the last bolt on Pining though. It is more likely to hold a fall than the natural pro.
