Rockfax Description
An intimidating pitch featuring both delicate and strenuous climbing. Start at the peg and nut belay of Krapp's Last Tape.
Climb up rightwards past a peg and up a shallow corner to an overhang, pegs. Pull over the overhang at a tiny corner, 2 pegs, and continue to a bolt. Steep climbing through the overhangs above on reasonable holds gains a break and bolt above. Head up to a shallow depression with two bolts in its left wall and climb it to its end, from where moves left reach an abseil station. © Rockfax

βeta: Proceed with caution. The undercut flakes on the 2nd overhang (just after 1st bolt) are very hollow. Trundled a large microwave sized block here today, what remains is keyed in, but looking dodgy.
