No Way is Patience a Virtue* 6b

Rockfax Description
The vague arete on the far left has a hard start. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
LH side of wall. Hard start but soon eases. Gain and climb the thin crack and the easier continuation. Step right at the break to follow a faint rib in the centre of the wall.
(Incorrectly called "No Way is Flatulence a Virtue" in the Rockfax. Originally trad at E1 5c. )
