Avoid the stretch left by climbing direct. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Direct Finish - 6c+. Excellent climbing. At the groove stretch left around the bulge to a hidden 'monster' then move back right. At the overlap bridge and pull direct on small crimps. Clip an old bolt and finsh straight up on delicate moves. Traverse to the belay left or right.

Didn't look at holds, climbed with Nick shouting beta, got to last hold before jug and made an irreversible rock over move. Could not do it with another attempt.
