SMC Description
35m. Originally described as separate variations to Kestrel Crack, these two pitches make a fine route in their own right.
1. 25m 5a Climb the left-facing corner well to the right of the normal start to reach the right-hand base of the huge flake. Move left and climb the outer edge of the flake to the bay.
2. 10m 5a Move up, then go right to climb the front face of a steep buttress via cracks and a slim corner. © SMC

Not sure which variation finish is which, traverse out under the huge flake is quite amusing though!

Ran the pitches together which was a mistake, the rope drag while pulling through the top moves was significant!

Start of the route was slabby and vegetated, so we started on anon and then moved across. Nice route with a fun flake. Finished with a more difficult variation by climbing straight up the crack on the outcrop to the right of the final corner.

Looks ok from below. But felt strenuous and committing on the final move. Got plenty gear in leading to rope drag but was worried it was all rubbish. Apparently they were all good though. Need to trust cam placements more.
