Similar too, but easier than Piglet. Start up the next groove and pray your foot sticks when pulling thru' the overlap.

Described as a bar of soap in the SMC Lowlands guide, and that's not in the least bit an exaggeration. You think it's polished when you get to the black rock under the roof, but just wait until you see the feet you use to get through the overlap! Easy lower half, bar a spot with no feet (toe jam excepted). Good gear at and through the crux but not a huge amount directly after. Nice, if clearly overclimbed climbing. Heckling from Steph up to the crux had to add half a grade...

Polished to shiny finish in places - particularly underneath roof (crux) so careful choice of footholds is helpful. Not convinced this is easier than Piglet - if anything found it a bit more tricky due to polish!
