Rockfax Description
One of the best hard problems in the Lakes goes up the overhanging wall via a collection of small edges, slopers and crimps. Start from opposing edges up to a "pinchy crimp" then up left to get the right edge of the smile-shaped feature. Slap up right for the finish ledge. The sit-down start version is V13 and appears to require the ability to levitate. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From the rock platform, climb the centre-right side of the face (LH reasonable gaston edge & RH small crimp) to two thirds height then veer left, via a hard move, to a 'smile' of crimps and edges and finish direct. Topend 8A.

I noticed the other day a section of rock next to the Left hand gaston has broken off and is now a good crimp making the problem easier.

My 2 cents: 7B/+ using new LH and rolling over with RH. 7C using new LH into original sequence.

Since the new crimp has appeared. Rolled over right hand to the slope instead of using the pinch-crimp thing. Maybe 7b+ like this.
