The short 45deg overhanging corner crack facing the approach gully to The Slabs. Scramble down past Karaka and Method Man to belay below the route. Tricky start gets you onto the easy face and past the two bolts. A high hand jam and some strenuous laybacking make up the crux, then it is back to some easy slab climbing up the very featured upper slab. Anchors shared with Karaka and MM. Technically, a hard 21, but potentially much harder as an onsight.

4 out of 5 stars strenuous

Bit of a one-move-wonder, but that one move is actually many small ones strung together and all quite strenuous. Basically a very sequential bouldery crux.
