A beautiful line up the slim groove right of the distinct red edge. Airy climbing and positions. Start by scrambling up to the base which is hidden in a chimney/gully,
1) 5a, 40m. Climb the chimney until you can step right onto the wall. Follow edges up right then back left past a short run-out to a groove. Climb this to a small overlap, making occasional use of the left arete. Pull around and finish up the easier groove above. Abseil off here or do the easy second pitch.
2) 4c, 25m. Climb up the flake to the top. © Rockfax
