Rockfax Description
Fine intricate face climbing. Weave up the centre of the slab (small wires and threads) to the horizontal break. Take a deep breath and balance on up the slab past one tiny wire. Escaping right from halfway up the slab, or placing a side-runner in Joint Effort, drops the grade to a (still excellent) E2. © Rockfax

βeta: My friend and I seem to disagree on exactly where this route goes! I went up from the undercut section at the bottom, past a thread to join The Nails at just below the upper groove (as shown and described in On Peak Rock.) My friend claims to be have been further right the for whole route (ignoring the upper groove, since he went for the E3 direct finish). Either way, nice climbing, and more commiting than the crack routes either side.

βeta: The hardest section of WTHT is the finish, however you do it, I think it should get the direct finish and an E3 tick

βeta: E3 to finish direct seems fair... E2 to traverse off
