Rockfax Description
Start below the crack and climb easily up to a small ledge. Above is a sustained section of laybacking to reach a good hold. From here, follow the flake-line rightwards more easily to a junction with Equinox. It is best finished up the crack leading up and left which was the original finish to Equinox. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Plenty of rather big and also rather hollow flakes. Dont bother to test them, you'll just get scared. Follow the obvious diagonal line to the left of Equinox. At the point where they meet either take the left hand branch or the righthand branch, easier.

βeta: Not sure which holds are now missing as per other comments. I am short and this felt harder than e2's (German school girl, Last tango in Peris) that I did on the same trip. Just one cruxy long reach with slick feet when at the flake in the middle of the climb.

βeta: Seems to be quite hard now a second flake has gone, think there's a few 5b moves now. loads of gear but please avoid placing cams unless you want the existing flakes to go the same way as the last ones.
