Description 

At the back of the lane. Climb up to a perch below a seriously overhanging face. Pull through this on huge jugs to just below the v-groove exit in the roof. Set yourself up then make a cruxy throw to a jug in the groove. Keep your feet pasted, then find a way to layback up to the horizontal above. Step out right, then back left on an incredible undercling flake, then up to a thin slopey rail. Pull up to the ledge above through an number of cruxy combinations. Catch another breather before the final sequence up the slightly overhanging orange wall. A proud send.

Location 

At the back of the lane, up the face between the arete and the dihedral. Just outside the Birth Canal.

bolting on this climb is weird; shorter folks have to run out the crux -- and with a diagonal roof to crash into it's not the nicest of falls.
Light belayer advised!
