Agent Provocateur* 7b
[Pulling on the crux crimp, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The counter line to Double Agent has a very hard sequence in its upper half. Start 2m to the left of the corner.
Climb past a small overlap just to the left of the corner and step left to join Double Agent. Make a long move up and left to a good hold before stepping back right to tackle the final fingery wall. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Now worth 7b as it has had a face lift, the old pegs have been replaced by bolts, also the hold on the crux has become smaller due to half it snapping off (and now the marginal foothold below also breaking).

Greenpoint. Trad gear only.
El3ctroFuzz - Lead rpt - 03/Sep/12 with Tristan Sherlock

three of us all tried and failed to make the moves after the high foot. just didn't seem to be any holds to move up to. one very small "mono" in the crack slightly too high, nobody with the power and coordination to stick it dynamically.

1st redpoint attempt. You dont need any marginal footholds just Put your foot in the jug
