Rockfax Description
A variation on Man of Straw. Start at a belay to the right of the arete. Climb the wall and cracks to gain the groove of Man of Straw and follow it to the overhang. Move right and climb boldly up the wall to gain a small corner and the top just above. © Rockfax

Mike505 14 Jul Lead O/S Good climbing and fun moves pulling right through the roof at the top of the 'Man of Straw' groove. I stuck the the middle of the top head wall and foind the gear dissapointing and the holds a little dirty. It deserves much more traffic and is well worth your time, it's perhaps a little undergraded at E1 though.

eb202 14 Jul 2nd O/S Quite dirty, particularly after the Man of Straw groove, but has some nice climbing. Top section has little gear, the holds are dirty, and there is still some climbing to be done at this point. Stiff, blind move pulling through the overlap after the Man of Straw groove, protectable by micro cams. A bit of height would be an advantage here to enable gear placement before committing. Not bad to second but could make for a thought provoking lead. Probably E2.

beds74 1 Aug, 2015 Lead Thought this harder & more sustained than Man of Straw. Tricky getting round roof, stuck to middle of wall to finish rather than busting out onto the arete. Worth doing.

alpinismo.uk 1 Aug, 2015 2nd Sustained and interesting moves, lots of moves felt 5b rather than a specific crux although it had that too excellent.
