First Ascent. Led after toprope practise and some cleaning. Didn't use mats, but they might help for the boulder problem start (maybe font 6c+/7a?). Start about 3m left of Botteril's Crack, go up using undercuts to the curved break (gear) and then up over the blank shield of rock. From the break, go right to finish up the thin finishing crack of Botteril's crack. There's a video on youtube if you're desperate for beta, it shows the exact line perfectly as well.
