Rockfax Description
A true sandstone classic. Latch the first juggy break and reach for the second one. Swing out and traverse left to reach up and eventually mantel onto the 'Luncheon Shelf'. Finish up the right side of the nose, known as Nose Finish. Photo on page 193. Big Air, f7C or 8a+ if top-roping. Dyno from the first to second break. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Gain the shelf from the obvious slanting jug on the right. Hand traverse out to the widest point and gain the Luncheon shelf. Finish up the wall above via a pothole.

Sebastien Gastaud 28 May, 2012 TR Fell on the first long reach as I tried to reach the first high hold with my right hand. climbed clean on second attempt. I left heel hooked, and grabbed the first high hold with my left hand instead, then matched with my right. toe hooked below the nose on the left, then moved my hands below the nose. Then the mantel shelf was OK, as I found a very good hold for my right hand on the left of the nose, toward the tip.
