Once in the glen, this route (if facing north/northwest) lies on the northern end of the crag which forms the the left side of the glen. A geochemical reaction has caused an interesting rough blue diamond of rock to form to the right of the route. The route is an obvious right facing overhanging dihedral with an intermittant hand and finger crack in the back. It is easy to find since it is the only feature of this kind in the glen. The name comes from the title of Somerset Maughan's famous short story, which if you want something good to read--this is one to consider.

Descent Options:

Walk off the top around to the right.
