An improbable line up the steepest and blankest section of the Ferocity Wall. Start at a sloping shelf that cuts in from the right.
14m. Make hard moves up to a left-slanting fault-line. Pull over a small overhang before moving rightwards to an undercut and finish direct.

Many sneaky sequences for the bottom crux, but beefy slapping is still the best! Deserves a reach symbol for the upper wall (obviously), but possible for all except the uber-short (less than 5'4, say). The last move is the best on the crag!
