A route for those who like them short, sharp and well protected. Amble up the lower section and assault the central crack in the white headwall. Brief but excellent.

Great route. Easy start leads to the underneath of the blank wall. Good gear here, then pull through the hard moves to the top. Pity it's so short, but otherwise really enjoyable

Overated and undergraded!

I found it hard to place gear once committed to the headwall, and so didn't. Bomber nut in the crack though.

An excellent route, though I found it easier than Balcony (HS) just to the left. Weird...

Balcony is a significant distance to the left. Stroof is just where the ledge is very narrow. Gangway is just to the right of balcony

Frigged the crack (on the second) trying to get my left foot up. One hard move and it's done. Good lead Carl!

Had a little play around on this on top rope - what a cool route. Having watched Jedi master Ben cruise it I nearly got it first go (it's just a case of getting the two or three move sequence right).
Gonna headpoint it to death with a view to leading it soon.
