Rockfax Description
Start as for Kicking Bird, pull through the overlap but then climb the slab to the right to the base of the thin crack on Smear Test. Gear under the overlap, and low in The Mincer, are all that protect you as you shuffle rightwards on poor smears and minimal handholds, trying not to think of your rope sawing on the lip in the event of a fall. A bit easier for the tall, but still 6b. © Rockfax

βeta: very sustained and fairly safe although it doesnt feel like it on an onsight, easy E6 but every move feels 6b with no respite,not really slopey or technical as depicted in the icons
