Getting into the meat of it.

Description 

Garden Party is an old aid line to the left of the finishing two pitches of Better Lock Next Time. This is a great finish to any route on the crag. From above the offwidth pitch on BLNT, climb an overhanging hand crack on the left side of the ledge. This gains the big open corner with the beautiful finger crack. Climb the overhanging finger crack to the top via whatever means necessary. I have been trying to free this and feel that it may be 12d. As it stands, it is mid-twelve with a short bit of aid.

Location 

This is on the top of The Sun left of Better Lock Next Time.

Fingers!
