Rockfax Description
A modern variation on Original Route that avoids the awkward crack and chimney climbing in favour of open face climbing. Start by a quartz-topped block right of Original Route. Go up the wall on holds up to the crescent slab. Follow this left as for the Original Route to just before the chimney/slot and move out left along a thin ledge. Make a long reach to a ledge and enter a small bay. Belay on the ledge above or continue up P2 of Original Route. © Rockfax

βeta: The upper section of this is I think actually the original line of Holly Tree Wall (based on the historical section of '93 Ogwen guide), and so this part at least isn't a "modern variation" as described here.
