Rockfax Description
18m. A butch outing that is 'only E2' for those who have done it a few times. From the sloping ledge in the corner, pull through the initial bulges (hard for the short) and hand traverse left to the point where strenuous moves up the inverted Y gain the jamming crack; sprint up this to the pedestal. Finish up the short crack above, or more fittingly out right in a glorious position. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
"A butch outing where the guidebook writers need to learn that they're grading for the onsight and comments like "only E2 if you've done it a few times" are irrelevant nonsense." 11-08-14
