Rockfax Description
A strong line and popular pitch. Move up the initial wall to the corner proper, then climb to beneath the roof. Traverse rightwards along the horizontal break and make a steep move up to a jug. Linking into the last moves of Wurlitzer Jukebox is 6c. © Rockfax

Fell off after accidentally taking the direct 6c version. Took such a dislike to the route I didn't bother having another go.
