Rockfax Description
The thin flake to the right of Sardine has an extremely technical and fingery middle section, which is now even harder due to the fact it keeps losing holds. At the small roof finish more easily up the wall to the Toadside lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Tomato Sauce is an entertaining excursion although I would suggest a reappraisal of the grade in light of the deparate 'crucifix' move to gain the Sardine ledge...and the fact that you have to do the fiddly undercut move to gain the crack of In Brine which is now much harder than when this link up was first done. Feels of a similar difficulty to Toadside. 7c? A route for those who have done everything else at this grade...why not?!

βeta: Sorry folks, but another hold has broken. The little spike for your left foot as you stood up using the fat pinch with your left has now gone. It is still doable though just a little bit more insecure. Almost certainly 8A now!

stp ??, 1987 Lead RP FA. My first route harder than 7b+. Took 10 days of effort. Found the crux particularly difficult. Never once managed to bolt to bolt the route. Given 7c at the time but looking back probably more like 7c+. Seemed harder than Main Overhang at Malham. A good enjoyable experience.
