[The Slippery Lip Trick, 4 kb]A traverse of the main overhang. Start on the left hand end of the crag and lower off 'Games of Ambivalence'. Traverse delicately using overhead holds until above the apex of the overhang (where the hangers become goldies). A notch in the slab (and large not-to-be-touched block overhead) requires you to step down onto the very lip of the overhang in an exposed position. Traverse rightwards on improving holds, mainly solid undercuts.

A F6b that feels like a F6c! Crux right below the dodgy block, but interesting nonetheless.
