Climb the right hand arete of the initial narrow slab to the right of Laugh Not (side runners in Laugh Not). Where the slab widens, make bold moves up the centre of the slab to a crucial keyhole nut placement (E3 5c for this bit). Move up and right from there to reach good holds and gear in the narrow diagonal crack taken by Sahara. Make hard moves up the crack and finish via the traverse of Laugh Not. Best to belay on a small ledge directly above the slab but there is an in situ abseil station a few metres further up which drops you down to the start of Feet of Clay.

Mike505 14 Jul Lead O/S Side runner used as per description and also a small alien just under the roof / overlap to the right (lean down and across and it's easy to find). The key hole placement wasn't as easy to use as I'd hoped and took a bit of fiddling to get sorted (wedged in two offset nuts one to take the fall and the other to hold it in place). The top crux isn't hard 6a but it's probably harder than 5c, the route is suprisingly independent and is only spoilt by its proximity to the 'Straw Man' jugs just before the crux.

Tom Redwood 14 Jul 2nd O/S Brilliant to second, possibly worth an extra star even with its proximity to easier lines. Wouldn't have wanted to lead yet as there are some hard bold moves. Would the crucial runner hold a big fall? Hmm...
