Rockfax Description
The parallel thin cracks just left of the slab's most prominent crack, climbed by Pharos, is yet another enjoyable pitch. Start at a smooth slab below the cracks.
Climb up the smooth lower slab to the cracks and follow these all of the way to a double bolt lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: First piece of gear (in the break) appears good but beware it sits behind a fairly wobbly sheet of rock, not sure it'll hold a heavy fall!

βeta: GWR guide gives this E1 and I agree having climbed Pickpocket on the same slab as there is slightly less gear than on pickpocket.

βeta: There's a really bomber thread about 2/3 of the way up just left of the cracks. Its narrow though so bring a dyneema sling and a nut key if you wanna use it.
