A hybrid typical of the crag which gains the fun upper wall of Jive Turkey by a long diagonal. Can be done easily on a single rope. Follow Tin Of but continue traversing left then climb direct to the upper break.

Nice wall climbing and a change from Tin of/ Sardine. No rope drag if you put a 4 foot sling on the first independant bolt and a few longer draws on Tin of. However, this sling needs to be in place for redpoint as otherwise u can't reach the hanger on lead without first doing the tricky traverse left leaving Tin of (and getting massively scared!) Go up Tin of, traverse the break leftwards to the belay, put in the last 2 bolts lowering off, wire top wall and then send...simple eh!

Forgot to add that the last clip is something of a 'gripper-clipper' being about 1m off line to the right and a bit of a rusty spinner at that. Would be a mega lob if you fell off clipping this with the long sling on the bolt below...
To equip, go to the belay of Tin-of and then traverse the break 3m leftwards to the BBS belay(this may not have been clear from my description). Also, the bolts are in; by putting in the 'bolts' I meant putting in the quickdraws. Form an orderly queue!!
