Description:

The first pitch, veering crack is fun jamming on low angle to link with the 2nd half of Cleaned for her pleasure. The dihedral where Sidewinder hits CFHP is difficult to see from the base, but glimpses of CFHP's second portion can be seen walking back towards mushroom band. The top of this route has a set of ledges, and the second can be brought up to a number of stances depending on leader's rope length and whether the climb is attempted in one or two pitches.

Descent Options:

Walk-around via east edge past sophie and gwen or rappell via shorter routes. The band is dangerously close to un-rappellable with a single 70 meter rope at this point of the cliff and west of it.
