Rockfax Description
As for Nicotine Alley, but finish up the crimpy start of Fandango to the first juggy rail. Technically one should finish by climbing Fandango Right-hand, but that's often not the case. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Traverse the lowest break of the Fandango wall from right to left, starting from the wide crack. Join Fandango at that route's start and finish up Fandango Right-Hand.
