It's the obvious corner in the middle of the crag. Stemming and jamming the finger crack gets you most of the way up, with the crux coming at the top when the crack runs out. This route shares a bolted anchor with The Ferret's Dead.
Parched Cat cliff, this is the first really obvious corner you encounter after scrambling down from the rim.
Gear to 2.5 inches

Thought this was better than Wildfire next door that gets 4 stars from Watts (longer & more sustained stemming).

Ditto on this being better than Wildfire. There's an extension called Orifice (10b) now doable with a 70m rope, a couple of draws and medium/small cams. Worth doing!
