From halfway up Stepped Crack, swing right around the arete awkwardly (loose flake) and finish up the deep groove.

Beware the loose flake where you move right. Going high is easier than staying low.

Putting your gear in higher is better too. The loose flake is fairly obvious and sound hollow.

Can also go below it and match on a good hold standing up for the ledge, if you daren't trust the rocking block on a solo.
