A sustained and desperate affair and not to be confused with the wide weeping crack just to the right, which is Sweet Sorrow and even harder. Start by a flake/crack that leads up and left.
1) 5a, 28m. Trend up and left to near the top of the flake crack and make a move up to gain the left end of a heather-covered ledge. Move right to below a crack and climb up it using pockets and layaways to where the crack steepens. Make some tricky moves up this before pulling out onto the right arete for a short distance, and move back left into the crack. Follow this to a ledge on Slab Climb.
2) 8m. As for Slab Climb.
