Rockfax Description
Good but devious, and hard. Pull through the bulge then cross the overhang by baffling moves to gain the base of the slab. Climb The Mincer a short distance, step back onto the slab as for Smear Test but climb up and right (almost as far as the crack - side runner) then finish back leftwards to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought this was a quality route with three distinct hard sections all requiring thought but ultimately safe.
