33m. A surprising classic up the obvious black streaks (may be dry even if they look wet), with a lot of "easier than it looks" climbing. Climb up the lower flakey section with a bold move to the bulge, continuing more easily to pink rock below a thin flake. Layback this positively past the drooping spike to the roof and cams, pull over this with delicacy to the next roof. Step right into a sheer groove which is also easier than it looks, swinging right onto good holds then a final balance move to a spike and new bolt before stepping down to the abseil point.

R Harrison, A Strapcans (A C Willmott (2 pts aid) Oct/1971) 13/May/1976.
