Description 

Shares the same start as Apologies, but continues straight up the overhanging offwidth. Though it looks intimidating, there is an edge inside, allowing one to layback instead of using offwidth methods.

Protection 

Full range of sizes.

This is a really good climb, ignored by most for the dirty start?

Maybe people are put off by its supposed offwidthness? At least you don't need any huge gear.. Up to #3 is sufficient.
