Description 

Steep 'brows with techy gear and good holds make this a worthy outing on the far right of the Sun Wall. Head up Southender and get gear high and right of the eyebrow infested wall. Drop back down and blast left over the bulge with good holds and some TCUs. Follow the path of least resistance to a large ledge with a belay on the left side. P2. Crank a bulge to a horizontal and climb great holds to a the bolt belay. Probably will be dirty so bring a brush.

Location 

Right of Ruby Tuesday at Southender.
One Rap with two ropes.

Protection 

Standard Looking Glass stuff. Med. cams in the belay. Extra TCU's in smaller sizes helpful. Double ropes.

This route can be done in one pitch with a 60m rope which is how I led it on the FA.
