Rockfax Description
The wide and steep zigzag fissure is much better than it looks. Climb direct, or cop out and swing into the crack from the right, and climb the crack steeply, usually passing an in-situ nest. © Rockfax

βeta: Swing in from the right? Climb it direct, great layback moves up the flake on the left then crawl into the cave...(which is full of bird shit, but that's why you came to kinder). still VS, and not a cop-out.
