Second Triple Wall

    Start from below and just right of a sandy cave. Move up then go rightwards past a sharp fingerhold to reach a flat hold. Stand on this with difficulty, then go easily to the top.

    A counter-diagonal to The Ratcher, starting some two metres right at some well-worn, chipped holds.
