A belter of a route if you like things a little bit traditional. The wobbly flake prompted Kirkus to say "The prospect of finding a sheltered chimney transformed into an overhanging face by the sudden departure of one of the walls is alarming!". Start below the flake and use Herford's Crack to gain a ledge. Move up and left to gain the thinner left-hand crack at a polished ledge/jug. Move up into the slot, past a thread, and chimney up the far side. Make a mind-bending step onto the tip of the pinnacle without pushing too hard as the whole thing moves slightly. A step onto the wall leads to the top.
