Rockfax Description
A mini-Mincer and quite popular, though this one is easier for the tall. From the foot of the odd perched flake, climb the grungy groove to the overhang and layback rapidly rightwards round this to easy ground. © Rockfax

βeta: There’s 2 flakes in the groove above the roof that have fallen off, meaning there’s no meaningful holds or gear until just under the roof (and the gear below that is the questionable large flake). One looks like it might have happened a while ago but the triangular hold looks more recently.
