A complex line - two (or three) pitches is sensible. Climb a thin crack past a stump then a jutting rib. Move down and across right to a stance below the arete. Up the rounded rib then move along ledges to the far right arete. Climb the face just left of this then grope around the bulge to find 'the big rocker' and an exit.

The upper section requires clarification. Does it take the fornt right arete or the easier back right arete. Neither are VS in any case.

Big sandbag more like!! I climbed the blunt arete to the roof, traversed left and over the roof at the crack. I've climbed easier E2s.
