UKC

10m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The thin crack provides an awkward start (primes the pump) then step right to a flake in the bulge. Climb leftwards to a grasping final move. Originally started from the chimney to the right which is easier but less satisfying. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the crack in the corner (same start as Bird's Nest Variation', till it is possible to traverse right to a flake in the bulge. Up this and move left and tackle the bulges above to a stiff finish. OK, if you know where the hold is.
