Battle up the slippery and strenuous groove to where the angle eases, then move up right to the hanging chimney of The Claw. Climb up this awkwardly to a ledge on the left - possible stance and escape route to the left, or take the rather scruffy ramp rightwards to easy ground (4c).

Had been saving this route for years as it always seems to be wet. Oh my word what a battle. The Claw is HVS 5a but Claw Left-hand is significantly harder and I can generally climb routes of a more 'traditional' nature...
