Rockfax Description
Hard work but oddly appealing and popular too. Thrash up the slanting chimney-groove to reach a trough and possible stance. Hand-traverse out left below the overhang until a steep pull (good gear) gains the thin finishing crack - phew! © Rockfax

βeta: A most entertaining route, in a sort of traditional fashion. Pumpy, but the difficulties are short-lived. Hard to get jams that stick in the traverse, which is best sprinted. It's all over once you have your hands in the vertical crack.
