12m. Climb steeply into the scoop then balance up its left edge using a thin crack before finishing straight up or rightwards into the wide crack which is a touch easier. © Rockfax

Had a top rope to get some gear so gave it ago, does anyone know if the big diagonal horizontal crack just to the left of the thin crack is on route? Seemed a bit desperate near the thin crack so reached over.

Harder than Scoop Face Direct IMO. The start on those slopey holds is very tricky
