Rockfax Description
An intimidating and exposed pitch. Use the Cliff-Top Quarry Approach. Traverse left and ascend a deep crack (shared with Figurehead), but where that continues out right, pull left (thread) to a niche in a corner. Move up the corner then traverse left between roofs for 10m to a break in the roof (thread). Gain jugs above and a steep exit headwall. Belay to the fence. © Rockfax

FA. Martin Crocker, John Harwood. The second pleaded not to follow this one but to no avail, hence the name! 19/Nov/1995.
