Rockfax Description
The first in a trio of fine wall climbs fortunately has a misleading name. Start beneath the large yellow-streaked curving groove. Climb up the barnacle-covered lower wall to gain the groove. Follow this to a roof then pull up above to a good hold. Finish up the short wall and blocky corner to belay in the open gully below the clifftop. © Rockfax

βeta: I wasn't keen on the lichenous start - this route just doesn't seem as continuous as Keelhaul or Baker's.
