Thomas the Tank. (beta warning for below if you don't read guides and want to onsight it)

If you follow the FA's instructions, it's a three-points off, long dyno out through a rooflet to a ledge using a hand jam, apparently 20 (!!). From talking to others that have tried it, it's probably more like 23 or 24 if you can actually manage to dyno off a hand jam (...) or even just a V3 with some bolts, but there's a better and easier way around it which means it's not even a "really fun" one move wonder, just a very short route that may not even be 20.

The number of good-looking routes with good holds and sequences is awesome. Everything on Vox Populi wall is worth a go and the stuff in the first cave is great (Los Hermanos for example - a very sustained route with great climbing and amazing to look at). It's just a shame the online guides are a fair bit of a mess, though it looks like someone's cleaning up thecrag with a few photo topos.
