A variation off The Swallow. If you don't want to get Swallowed whole by the wide crack then head left onto The Gulp. This crack is fairly steep and on the wide side but is no offwidth. This pitch has a great photo on The Swallow route info. It veers off left halfway between 1 and 2 on that photo (after a traverse left). The crack leans left a little in that photo.
The line starts up The Swallow. At the base of the wide crack head up and left to a crack of reasonable width. We followed this until it joined Whodunnit not far above the chimney crux. A great way to pass somebody starting on Whodunnit. The Swallow begins up easy ground that gets progressively steeper between Whodunnit and Consolation.
Standard rack. The actual gulp pitch takes cams in the 3" range.

I linked this to the bolted belay that both Edgehogs and Magical Mystery Tour share. I attempted to finish on MMT but the 10a pitch as indicated in the book looked like a lichen filled shit show so I went right somewhere between that and Edgehogs at about 5.7, not on the topo in the Vogel book.
