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

Though move at the start and then the climbing felt rather adventurous.

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 :-)

A key hold gives you the roof, and after that it's fairly straightforward.
