The impressive smooth wall to the right of the great roof has a sustained and hard series of pitches. Start in the old sheep fold under the base of the wall.
1) 6c, 35m. Climb straight up the face to a small stance. A right-hand start up the groove and wall is 7a.
2) 6c, 35m. Move right to reach a left-slanting rake then follow this as it heads to a stance between detached flakes.
3) 7a, 30m. Weave up the superb wall to a cramped stance in the middle of nowhere.
4) 6b+, 25m. Move left then climb rightwards to an impressively-situated stance under the overhangs.
5) 7b, 25m. Pull leftwards through the roof onto the hugely exposed headwall and trend rightwards to an easier groove.
