Make a detour into Lime Street Direct for a few moves from Sun Chariot, then come back left.
This is not a defunct route! It was originally climbed with the super direct (thin crack) start to Lime Street, stepping out onto the left rib as soon as possible and still does at E4. Keeping on the right hand side of the rib gives some good hard moves protected by small wires and 2 pegs at 6b.
The pegs have been removed, but there is excellent if slightly spaced gear on the upper wall anyway. Maybe E5...
This is definitely not a defunct route. Whenever I have done it I have started up the curving groove to the left of Limestreetís direct start, then moved into Limestreet for a few metres before moving back left and climbing the upper wall. The gear is bomber; small wires. Not E5, pretty soft for E4 I thought.
