A classic. Crank up the thin crack (awkward to start) to a rest in a tiny groove. Head left across the wall on surprising holds then pull over the roof and pedal up a short, wide and deceptively awkward crack. Becoming polished.

A joke that slipped through the net?

what do you mean by this?

I don't remember BRM having a roof or a short, wide, awkard crack, nor does the photo. I think the comment refers to the description / route mismatch.

Great route, pretty steady after the first couple of moves. Maybe a long reach helped, but felt very easy for E1. Nice to see the Bicycle is still there !

this is quite possibly the best route ever!

A very nice route, It does have a roof and wide crack, right at the top, but they are easy.
