Description 

Start off on a good flat hold, move into thin tips laybacking in the corner. At the top of the corner is a slam dunk move out right to a sloper then traverse left on good jugs. A sharp fingerlock or a crimpy sidepull gets you out of the mini-roof. Punch it out of the crux with an airy deadpoint to a great jug. Fight the pump to the top and work the good hands to their end. Punch it to the anchors at another bulge after you've recovered on the friendly jugs on the face.

Location 

Route is shaded.
Three routes left of Jaws and two right from Chockstone. Obvious hard trad line.

Protection 

Bring a selection of smaller gear (TCUs) and nuts. Some larger pieces are useful in the upper part of the route. Bolted anchor.
