Rockfax Description
The wall left of Cameo has bold climbing but if you can crimp then you might find it OK! It may need a clean and a side-runner in Spider Crack is probably no bad idea. A tiny nubbin can be tied-off, and who knows - it might even hold a fall! © Rockfax

βeta: the description here is slightly wrong though. You don't really climb the wall to easier ground, it steady 5b wall climbing to a harder move higher up. The crux is the move to gain a big edge 6 inches below the top assuming you haven't moved left. One move to top out doesn't really constitute easy ground.

βeta: I stuck two poorish nuts in cameo pretty much level (on move up and reversed) with where you break off left and then a cam above the slung flake in the crack to the left (again one move higher than you continue on the line of the route.) In all honesty using the flake alone would be ok but its not a route i'd want to fall off in a hurry. Wouldn't bother slinging a chicken head with cord, if its where i was thinking it was it would get in your way as a handhold on the crux. If you're that desperate there's plenty of places for skyhooks. Felt steady E4 5c, definitely Cheat's big brother; a step up in boldness. Escapable at the crux unfortunately. There was chalk on the route when I did it but clearly from top ropers as it was all over the place, would feel bolder without any chalk on the route.

βeta: Great and delicate crimping in a fine position. Climbable without cleaning as long as it's dry - a lack of chalk enhances the experience. Most natural thing to do with gear is the obvious low runners in Cameo before trending left, and the obvious hollow flake runners higher on the left - felt like a reasonable E4 like that.
