    Start on the left and climb up trending right to a jug and runnerin Jimmy Nip, then move back left to a peg and one last strenuous pull for the break, then traverse off. A more direct, but more artificial variation is possible at 6c.

    Climb the deep crack in the centre of the buttress to the break, then step right to finish.
