A great route up the centre of the white wall. From a stance in the base of the window, climb leftwards into a thin crack. Up this until it fizzles out then step left into a second crack. This gradually eases to ledges and an exit corner.

Really worthwhile, well-protected (but strenuous to place gear) and good rock. Only drawback is the 20 foot of grassy and slightly loose ground to finish - which fortunately is only about VS
