Hell's Teeth* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
A good honest pitch with a tough initial overhang. Start 3m to the right of the far west limit of Flake Ledge. Move up to the overhang and climb the crack over it with difficulty and continue to a block. Now move up and right to a steep groove and follow this to the top. Stake belays on the ledge. © ROCKFAX

Made a long reach for the top of the overhang, then cut loose and then humped my way up... maybe I missed something. The grazes on my arm explain the route name! Pretty straightforward after the overhang.

A key hold gives you the roof, and after that it's fairly straightforward.
