The obvious thin finger crack that splits the bulging slab at the far right of buzzard wall, leading to easier slab above. Anchors are above the final roof overlap.

5 out of 5 stars About time..

Tried this a few times years ago, but it spat me off. This time - clean first try. Sweet. The fingerlock at the crux move is brutal. The final roof overlap is a entertaining sting in the tail, too, make sure you dont bypass it!

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb

The feet are definitely the crux of the route. Fairly secure finger crack. Unrelenting, I enjoyed it.
