An unlikely climb which is seldom dry but proves popular when in condition. Pull over the first overhang to a shake, then tackle the second overhang and move up and right to gain and follow a strenuous flake-line leading right to the lower-off.

Requires months of dry weather to become climbable. Covered in dirt (july 2001): but great moves and sequences. A pity it isnt on a cleaner crag.

Think a hold has dropped off the initial roof? Feels more like 7A. Harder than clarion call.
