Yet another gritstone classic! Near vertical friction climbing leads to interesting roof-like jug stuff.

Climb the wide-to-thin crack 2/3 up the wall to the right-facing, overhung jug-corner.


Start 15 feet right of April Crack at the chunky OW, and 15 left of the distinctive Central Trinity cracks.

Walk off right past Flying Buttress.


Standard rack.
