Description

I haven't sent this problem, but it deserves inclusion in the database since it is probably the most-tried, best-known 'hard' testpiece in the area. Four moves! There are many beta variations, but all involve starting matched on the crimp rail, a creative foot placement, a desperate friction grab on the poor swell, and a lunge for the flat jug just below the lip. Fire away!

A gruesome sit start exists as well. Take one look at the 'holds' and you will doubt very much the validity of the first ascent. This has seen one repeat in 10+ years.

Location

North of the pebble boulders, just below Tower Face. Located on the uphill side of a very large block called 'the photograph'. Clamber down into the eponymous Pit and look for the chalk.
