Description 

A well protected face friction climb on a rounded arete. Crux is after the third bolt.

Location 

The route is the first bolted line immediately left of the 5.6 chimney start of Royal Arches.

Protection 

5 to 6 quick draws for the modern bolts protecting the route, and slings for the three bolt anchor (of which two of the bolts are old quarter inch bolts).

I actually thought the crux was getting off the ground (unless you use the crack start of Surplus Cheaper Hands a few feet left, which I assume is off-route). Difficulty seemed to ease up after the second bolt. Then again I did find myself doing a pull up on my finger nails somewhere around the 3rd bolt, but that was more painful than cruxy.

The anchor is entirely rebolted now.
