Climb the right hand arete of the initial narrow slab to the right of Laugh Not (side runners in Laugh Not). Where the slab widens, make bold moves up the centre of the slab to a crucial keyhole nut placement (E3 5c for this bit). Move up and right from there to reach good holds and gear in the narrow diagonal crack taken by Sahara. Make hard moves up the crack and finish via the traverse of Laugh Not. Best to belay on a small ledge directly above the slab but there is an in situ abseil station a few metres further up which drops you down to the start of Feet of Clay.
