Rockfax Description
Climb the tough crack right of the block then finish up the bold right-hand arete of the side-wall. The left arete is easier. © Rockfax

Off width start then the arete which I found easier using the pinch and stepping up the front of it, Kev found it easier grabbing the good hold from the left and rocking up. Just shows that it's different strokes for different folks! :D Quite bold though.
