Rockfax Description
A much-travelled favourite. Start below a wide crack on the right of an overhang at 4m. Climb up past the overhang, and then pursue a line leftwards to a long groove just right of the arete. Follow this to an overhang and finish via some difficult final moves. © Rockfax

βeta: Following on from tbertenshaw's comment, the line hasn't changed much in the new guide either, and the bolts are still to the right of the overhang.

βeta: Excellent route. Be careful of the topo. Near the top follow the obvious line of bolts up and slightly right of the small overhang. The topo in the old guide implies climbing over the left hand side of the overhang.

βeta: Awesome route. Did it in the dark a few summers ago. Was still bloody hot, so we went for a swim.

βeta: Good route, but a fall while clipping the 2nd bolt would lead to a ground crunch and the last move is way harder if you're short.
