Rockfax Description
The tallest section of the South Face is taken by this smashing climb. Start at the base of a right-leaning flake-crack.
Climb the flake-crack to the horizontal break and make a tricky move to stand on a ledge above it. Move left to a flake and climb up this and the wall above to a small rounded boss. Traverse right to more good holds and follow these to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Probabally the best route on the main face, although the exact route is slighly undefined/confusing. Climb easily up the flake on the main wall, to a strenuous and possibly undignified!(if tackled direct) move onto the ledge. From the ledge "find the easiest line up" (probabally out left) to bag the VDiff, or tackle it direct for a slightly harder challenge (S?). Then again,start up the wall to the left of the flake for a harder (5b) problem.

βeta: A strenuous move onto the ledge, can protect with cam placed down into the flake from above into the crack, stem bending over the ledge, as description says “strenuous and possibly undignified” Certainly was for me! belly flop! Tricky above the next flake as no gear but may have gone too high before traversing right to other flake, felt very tenuous for a vdiff!
