Start on the left and climb the 'coffin' crack to a chockstone, then move right and climb the wall (a bit bold) to a possible (sensible?) stance (4c). Climb to the roof then traverse round the arete rightwards to slopers and ashort finishing crack (4b ).

Top pitch is spectacular but easy for 4b.

The protection is poor (should be HVS). Interesting top pitch !!
Steve Barker - 19/Jul/04

I guess the crux is the boldness required to lean out over a very suddenly exposed wall and reach up and out. I also wondered about protection for that move but it is there.
