Description 

Starts with a steep roof and a nice juggy headwall with some business at the top.

Location 

Starts right of the Uncle Bill. This is the right most route at the upper tier (with chalk on it). The (incorrect) name "Drizzler" and grade are at the base.

Protection 

Bolts. I would stick clip at least the first bolt on every route at this crag because its a bit chossy at the base.

We have always called this route "The Drizzler" as the name has been there since it was put up and justly named as there is glue drizzled on the smooth cobbles at the crux. Also the name in Pegg's book. Whatever the name, this route is great. IMO best route on the wall. Get on it!!!
