The roof crack to the right is a battle. The use of knees, and loss of chunks of flesh, are pretty much par for the course. © Rockfax

βeta: I still hold to my statement that anything that can be jammed can be lay-ed back. Great powerful moves on good holds in the crack out to the lip, then a pause and much harder layback to get the left foot on. For a route with such a description, it shouldn't be this much fun... but is ;-)

βeta: Fantastic moves out to the lip. Easy (for the grade) if you like jamming.
