Follow the short crack to its end then move round onto the front face. The expected belly-flop finish is made much easier by a surprising pair of ancient chipped finger jugs. © ROCKFAX

Dogged first go but relead placing gear again latter in the evening. Had to untie one rope mid route on lead due to rope work issues so almost blow it a 2nd time. Good climbing, but not often climbed going by the logbook entries despite its two stars in the current BMC guide (The topo is wrong though in the first topo showing it travesing the next break up before showing it on the correct line under the roof in the 2nd topo). More people should seek this out.
