Description 

Start up a left-angling seam then wander up a series of bulges and discontinuous finger-cracks. There's probably a few variations, but we aimed to link up the most obvious cracks. Small cruxes at a small slab step-across and the start. All in all a quality climb worth a run. Shares the anchor with Wheaties.

Location 

Starts on the left-angling crack just left of the huge corner. Bolted anchor in the alcove. 70m or double ropes mandatory.

Protection 

Basic rack. Bring stoppers and finger-sized pieces.

really fun climb, mostly thin hands and fingers. if this climb was in jtree it would be quite popular. rock is a bit coarse.
