Starts to the left of the 'cave' under the overhang of the fang. Follow a good crack until it joins the fang (traversing in from the right). Where the Fang continues up towards the large flake, Fang Direct moves right into a shallow scoop. Ascend the scoop with interest to good holds and the belay of Fang. Continue and finish as for Fang. Given E1 in the latest Eastern Crags Guide.
