A contender for the best outing on grit! Sprint up the layback flakes trending right to a rest on jams at a break. Before courage and power flag more laybacking leads to unobvious jug-hauling and an ungainly rest in a niche. Escape out right awkwardly (rounded hand-traverse or ungainly grovel, using holds in the roof) to finish up a wide crack. A brilliant belay is located above. © Rockfax
