A blank corner and desperate roof crack give a 70s classic. Hard bridging moves (loads of small wires) lead up the corner to below the roof where you can finish up Orang-outang to give a popular E3 6b. Stretch into the roof-crack, shuffle towards the lip with your feet on the side-wall then levitate the final moves. © Rockfax
