Rockfax Description
The vague arete on the far left has a hard start. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
LH side of wall. Hard start but soon eases. Gain and climb the thin crack and the easier continuation. Step right at the break to follow a faint rib in the centre of the wall.
(Incorrectly called "No Way is Flatulence a Virtue" in the Rockfax. Originally trad at E1 5c. )

Agree about the hard start. Makes the rest of it feel like a breeze!

Hold broke before the first clip. Claiming the clean onsight for the first 'real' attempt.

Bouldery start, with a second crux higher up as long as you ignore the crack. Another lovely route!!
