20m. Somewhat bizarre and devious in line, but good, satisfying climbing never-the-less. Mantelshelf onto a narrow ledge then trend left, passing the overlap almost to the corner before heading up to another ledge. Swing back right to access the notch at the top of the wall and finish through this with care.

Somewhat bizarre and deviant in line, but good, satisfying climbing despite that. The start is quite tricky!

I can confirm again that getting onto the first ledge is still bloody hard and possibly the crux of Fingertip Control lol.
