Rockfax Description
The cracks in the north-facing side-wall lead to a sloping shelf. Before you pump out, stretch awkwardly right and reach for the top, or go direct - rounded either way. © Rockfax

βeta: Sure, going straight up is probably more natural. However, the climbing going rightwards is quite nice and in that sense makes for a better route. It was also the way it was originally done.

βeta: Surely this route is better if finished direct via long stretch to the top from undercuts. This is how 'on peak rock' describes it and then suggests resorting to slinking off right if you can't reach. I've only done it the long stretch method so can't compare. Easy for E2 either way though I guess - not that pumpy.
