Rockfax Description
A fierce and fingery wall climb that eases with height. Avoid contact with the rail on Gully Wall and, if you're feeling strong, then try the smooth footless direct finish, 6c+ 6a, that requires one hell of a mantel and is much harder for the short. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the pocketed wall right of the Pig's Nose arete without using the breaks running right from the aforementioned route. Finish straight up the top block.

N Head 1972.
