An awesome route which is even harder than it used to be. Lurch left out of Brooks' Crack (side-runner up and right) to indifferent wires behind the broken flake which protect an increasingly harrowing set of moves up and left to the final gripping rock-over/foot change. A sport grade of 8b is found to be useful information by some.
FA. John Dunne 1989. In 2011 Canadian climber Will Stanhope broke the flake and took a ground-fall. Ben Bransby reclimbed the route in 2013.
