A taxing traverse along the sloping finger-break, gains a shallow flake - a popular f6B to here. A committing long stretch and an ancient chipped hold (lest we forget) reaches the Valkyrie stance. There is also a direct start using another chipped hold which is f6B+, although easier than that for the tall.

Bloody marvellous. "Worrying stretch" for full pose finish head up Valkyrie (wussed out when I first did it and scampered off, on return visit did full finish over the top)
