Scroach** E2 5c
[Scroach, 2 kb]21m.

Rockfax Description
From the tip of the tombstone, make a baffling (6a until sussed?) step round left into the shallow groove which takes small wires that are tricky to place. The groove and steep jamming crack above lead to ledges. Traverse out left and climb the wall to finish. © ROCKFAX
