Rockfax Description
Perhaps the best and most sought-after traverse on Sandstone. From Skiffle, traverse the fingery break to the start of Fandango and continue leftwards using the middle line of holds, finishing up on the large jug on Coathanger.
Taking the lower set of holds at the end before heading up to the Coathanger jug is Nicotine Alley Variation, f7A+. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The eye level traverse on the Fandango Wall, named because of the Nicotine stained colour. Start as for Tobacco Road but continue leftward where that problem escapes upwards. Originally finished by stepping round onto the greasy left sidewall of the buttress.

Ben_Roberts 16 Jun, 2019 Sent x Having pulled onto some of the holds when I barely could climb V4, I can't count this as a flash, so it's a retro flash I guess.
