13m. A fine, direct intermittent thin crack line up the centre of the steep wall, situated between the corner crack 1st pitch of Bulging Flies on the left and the 1st pitch of Vapona on the right. A bold start leads to adequate protection. Continue on a great variety of moves, (with a few holds not obvious) to the short tough crux, protected by a peg. A hidden tiny edge on the left extremity of the wall with crimps on the right enable a reach to a mono digit crimp and dyno for the ledge. Further interesting climbing leads to the belay on the ledge above. The corner crack on the left is definitely out of bounds.
