Start in a jug right on the lip coming up from an amazing (if it weren't chossy) cave. Basically campus into another jug, find a good foot (drop knee, toe jam, heel hook, wtv), and make an enormous move up and out left to a diagonal, left handed, crimp **crux**.
Hold on and maintain tension, moving up to another crimp with your right, and from this point on - hold on until the top...V5 +/- once you get your hands on the larger crimps.
This line is found, if looking at Francesca - directly behind you, to your left (7 o'clock)... about 15 yards back, within view site. Down a "hill" if you will... you'll see the big overhang. The route starts down under in a jug right at the lip.

This prob threw me a bit. Firstly it wasn't so clean, lots of lichen on the crimps above the jugs which made the line hard to spot. Guess that stuff grows quick out here. Anyway it was quite fun and challenging. My only recommendation would be to straighten out that landing a bit and clean her up real good (the upper half while easy needs some serious love). If I had more time here, I'd gladly do this as the line deserves to be noticed. Nice one, Hoez.
