Great line, great name. Height dependent belly pulling crux.

Probably the best line on the wall, who ever bolted this line was a visionary. It is a shame that the FA gave it such an unfortunate name.

The fist crux is really cool with unusual movement and then there's more business right before the chains. The person who equipped this was indeed a visionary and selfless enough to put this line up so one of the local hardmen could quickly dispatch it.

Said hardman, if I remember correctly, did contribute the best feature of this little crag. He made a great little chair out of the trundled blocks. Good work on flashing this beast of a climb and then making chairs for weaklings like me to retire to. Watching the show, right where I belong.
