Rockfax Description
The wall left of the crack has hard starting moves. Once the first good hold (just a 4c hop away for the tall) is reached things ease. Most of the iron finger-jugs have long gone. © Rockfax

came off a few times getting off the floor, Twisty placed gear far on the right, so had to step off route (I think) to get it out.
