The thin crack, with one tricky move that is very run out.

left heal hook helps on the hard bit

and a head jam into the corner if you're not tall enought to reach the top of the bulge.

Easily the hardest 6b I've ever done. It has apparently lost a hold on the crux. I think 6b+ or even 6c would be more appropriate.

Glad you think so Ben! that explains the head jam.

Does anyone know what the extra line of bolts is next to this route to the left? If so, what grade is it?

The new route to the left is Mackerel - 4+

I wonder if this has changed in character since the earlier comments - really enjoyed this, and felt it a shame the climbing didn't go on longer. The holds are there if you search for them, and the difficulties only last through one move, where the bolt is around waist height. There is an unappealing ledge below I suppose. But I thought this was a great little route.
