Description 

Getting on to the ledge after the layback is a bit awkward and I think it is the crux.


Location 

Left of the route Red Dwarf. Follow trail left from
The Griddle. Continue left at the cairn another 50 feet. It is the crack around the corner from the left angling crack on the steep red face. If you go right at the cairn it leads to the upper tiers Brown Dwarf and Heliosphere

I broke a few holds off and I know others have too. Someone felt the block at the top of the wedge felt a little hollow so be careful there. I still thought the route was worth doing and had some fun moves.

Between 2nd and 3rd bolt, taller climbers can clip from below the flake if the draw is hanging. Shorter or no draw = you have to get right up to the 3rd bolt. Juggy but I wouldn't want to fall right there.
