Start as for The Jolly Logger, but veer left onto the slab below the roof as soon as you have good gear in the left hand crack. Step up and out left past the roof (crux), and continue up the easy crack to the top. Technically probably no harder than 17, but tends to feel like 18/19 onsight.

3 out of 5 stars finally!

After almost 2 years of toproping and hangdogging it, I finally felt ready.
Super balancy through the crux, but with the right gear, or cool head, it goes pretty well.
