Rockfax Description
A good honest pitch with a tough initial overhang. Start 3m to the right of the far west limit of Flake Ledge. Move up to the overhang and climb the crack over it with difficulty and continue to a block. Now move up and right to a steep groove and follow this to the top. Stake belays on the ledge. © Rockfax

jonah_cook 27 Aug, 2018 2nd O/S Good technique makes the roof significantly easier. I do not have very good technique.

Rgledable 27 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S 100th Outdoor climb of the year! Really nice HVS, the roof looked intimidating but I found it less of a struggle than expected, hand jam in the back of the crack was solid.

will_benfold 11 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S Made a long reach for the top of the overhang, then cut loose and then humped my way up... maybe I missed something. The grazes on my arm explain the route name! Pretty straightforward after the overhang. Edit: Two years on, I still have an inch-long scar on my forearm from this route :-)
