Rockfax Description
Thin smearing up the steepening slab. Runners in the crack become less useful as the sketchy two-move-wonder crux approaches. A popular first E6, though is it really E6 if you top-rope it first? Answers on a postcard to the Editor please. © Rockfax

βeta: A fall from the crux is not deckable - I checked it with a rucksac... Only just though! 2 hard moves at the top, slowly losing the pebbles it once had.
