More nice face climbing. The upper half is a bit hard to protect. Takes the left side of the wall around left of Stiff Little Fingers, starting behind the prominent small pinnacle left of SLF. Follow the series of cracks about two metres tight of the arête, then the scooped face above and slightly left (#1 flexible Friend towards the top).
