The Beautician* E4 5c
14m. From Inaccessible Crack, step left above the roof and climb to the break. The right-trending scoop above gives committing and delicate moves that feel quite bold. © ROCKFAX
Typically delightful slab climbing that is only E4 if you contrive to ignore the runners that are 18" left of the starting handholds on the crux wall. Fun rockovers lead up this to finish.

Top slab moist and didn't want to commit to it so scuttled off on to Inaccessible Crack.
