  The crux move through the roof was previously described as 'exciting...will get the adrenaline flowing'; it now has a bolt at the lip (2018), and subsequently chalk on the holds for the first time in many years. The crack on the headwall is nice too. Alternate access from the left via Straight and Narrow Direct Start.

Comments

The crux can now be accessed from the left by the direct start to Keeping on the Straight and Narrow (4B, G16), or stay with the original version. The upper crack was cleaned and a bolt placed at the lip of the roof (crux) in 2018 to entice climbers onto this long ignored but good route, so replace 'exciting' with 'relaxing'.
