An excellent route with perhaps the best climbing at Humphrey Head. Move up to beneath double bolts right of the tufa. Go up and right and continue up the thin crack in the headwall. Move left to a lower-off. A few wires are needed. © Rockfax

βeta: great route, start on the route to the left though to avoid the dodgy lower bolts, the line and climbing is still great coming in from the left
