24m. The lower crack is almost always damp and usually smelly. Ignore this fact and jam up it to a (possible) stance on the giant flake. The continuation is awkward, especially the fist-grinding belly-flop into the wider finishing section.

Superb. Sustained, but excellent gear. The very top move is the crux; I swam and swam but I landed.

No fist jams necessary or for that matter obvious. Tricky combination of hand jams to top out though.

desperate finish!
the best thing about this route is the fact that now i've done it, i'll never have to do it again!!
