Description 

Thin face through a bulge, don't be afraid to wander a bit. There is a short run between the first and second bolt that isn't hard but if you blow it you will be very sore.

Location 

First route right of Pinhead Crack.

A must do for the aforementioned trad climber who was bored and decided to climb Unfinished Sympathy and Needle Noggin but still has 30 minutes to kill before heading home for an adult leisure beverage, but doesn't want anything too hard but still wants to climb something kind of interesting.

Groundfall runout between first and second bolt: the climbing is harder just off the first bolt where the fall is safer, but not entirely trivial approaching the second bolt.

PS Scratch that, once you go the right way and get 2 or 3 feet past the first bolt, it's probably like 5.5 climbing to the second bolt.
