Rockfax Description
The thin stuck-on tufa provides a butch classic. A crafty knee-bar aids the starting sequence. The old 'chain grab' finish is no more now the chain has been replaced by rings. © Rockfax

βeta: It's a much better route (and a bit harder) if you finish on the jug up and right, and clip the new crab to the right of the chain belay. Always felt odd with the hardest move being grabbing the chain. Going to the jug makes it feel less like using a point of aid.
