<< Black Death < Machete Wall | The Slot > Barn Owl Crack >>
Reasonably-protected wall climbing linking some subtle features on the face right of Inkerman Groove. Start as for Machete Wall.
Follow Machete Wall until below the short white corner. Move up left to a ring peg and then up to a horizontal break. Take the shallow, left-trending groove, peg, to another peg at its end and make difficult moves left onto the edge of Inkerman Groove at an ivy patch. Move right, thread, and up to meet the top of a thin crack-line on the right, thread. Easier climbing gains the finish of Inkerman Groove.

There are two directs on this. Most obvious- go straight from the peg at the top of the groove to the thread. This adds a hard move, removes the rest and probably makes for a better pitch. Secondly, leave the groove at the old, rusty peg and go mostly up and a bit right via a couple of little pockets to meet (and finish up) penny lane at the roof. Have fun.
