100m, 3 pitches. New direct variation of Kalahari, allowing access for mortals to the phenomenal roof traverse that is P3 of Free Stone Henge. P1 (4b, 10m) as for Kalahari. P2 (6a, 30m) - start up the bulge and then diagonally right to a small hanging slab that allows access leftwards around the end of the first roof (crux). Move up to a rest and then launch out right along the undercut flake through the roof to the nose. Belay 5m up the slab. Outstanding. P3 (5b, 30m) - Surmount the cracked face and go up R to the cave to finish up the crack-line as for Kalahari.
