Tricky sequence mid-height. Traverse left below the flake marked with a chalked 'X'...

Had too wait a while to access the lower off's. When we finally had access, the group had left their QD's insitu for some people who wanted to access it later. carly lead the adjacent route and set up a lower off using their QD's rather than removing and returning. Sometime later, carly lead Glamour Cat and discovered one of the QD gates had opened and the rope had come out. I then began to second the route but got psyched out a few holds up that the same set up still remained, silly really.

Much nicer than Face in the Chert. Harder too, and crosses chert band which is still crumbly.

Thought it was a crunchy pile of shite in 1997. Remember last moves heading off left on horrible rock?
