Description 

A line of large, good-looking, faintly over-hanging flakes leads up to difficult knobs. Then comes a ledge and a final vertical section to the top of the crag. This is probably the longest route at the crag.

The crux difficulty is height-dependent. It may be 11+ for tall folks, and solid 12 for shorties. At my height (5'11") it felt 12Aish.

Incredibly thick lichen has been reduced by traffic and brushing, but there was a bunch. More traffic will help.

Location 

The east side of the crag has a low-angle area with the routes Sugar Time and Sweetness. Right of Sweetness we run into tower 3 and the angle increases sharply to slightly over-hanging. A line of flakes leads up from a tombstone shaped block with a keeper bolt nearby. The base has been cleaned up to the point that the keeper is probably not necessary.

Protection 

10 bolts and a snap-hook anchor.

Great climb! Good balance & technique will help you through the crux, as will a little height...nice OS Hugo!
