A very fine pitch. Start on a boulder at the base of a slim corner. Climb the corner and then slightly left to attain slabby ground. Now head up to the right of an overlap and once past it (thread) go leftwards to a flake (reported to be hollow). Climb up the wall and flakes above to the top. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The routes starts at the rightmost of the two corners in the middle of the wall, as shown in the picture in the guide book. Climb to the break in angle and aim slightly rightwards towards the downward-pointing tree branch, where the downward-pointing flake is visible, looking like a loose block from the bottom. The thread is on a ledge below this, which can also be clipped from No Muskateers before it traverses off rightwards.
From here, the leftward trending line of flakes is visible, and the final flake is the obvious highest point of rock above.
