A popular test-piece that lies at the upper end of the grade. A strenuous outing up a series of small overhangs that features three hard sections and a perplexing no-hands rest.

see if you can find the no hands rest!

Theres one just beneath the second to last hard overhang, on one of the underclings used, where you can jam your left knee into, but it's very tiring...

Very good sustained roof climbing. Crux is slightly harder for the tall, but the rest is then a bit easier.

There was a note on the first bolt of this route yesterday (20/06/10) warning that the large flake half way up the route was very loose.
