Rockfax Description
Climb the slippery crack which splits the right-hand side of the slab as it runs leftwards - poorly protected. Move back slightly right and then make a short traverse to a good ledge above the centre of the slab (possible belay). Climb the corner-crack to a ledge then finish direct with care. It is also possible to move right round the arete to a chimney with a loose exit. © Rockfax

βeta: Lovely route, and 2 very distinct styles to it. Technical, delicate slab, then juggy, well protected, finish. Did the direct finish.

βeta: Straight up the groove/chimmney above the crack is the obvious finish and the one given in the definative guide. A good route
