Rockfax Description
The undercut flaky crack is awkward to access (4b for the short) because of the undercut start. Once reached, the main crack soon eases to a steep but juggy romp. © Rockfax

βeta: I left a red cam (1 1/3) stuck in the point where the crack divides in two (if I remember properly).

βeta: Can't quite see any way around the first few moves in order not to make it 4b+, but after that a great solo warmup for the rest of the area. Severe feels about right in total.
