A superb stamina-test that follows the cracked face right of The Lean Machine. It shares the middle section of The Lean Machine and has a tough start and finish. Start at a thin crack.
Climb to the low fault-line and then follow a thin crack with difficulty to a slot. Continue to join The Lean Machine and follow it to a shallow horizontal break. Climb out rightwards to a small recess and move up out of it with difficulty until a move left gains a flake. Join and finish up The Lean Machine. Finish by pulling up on the abseil rope.

Great climbing with 2 cruxes. Definitely a fair bit harder than lean machine, but not 6b, just 6a when you're a bit pumped. Very well protected
