Start just left of the right-hand edge of the slab and climb straight up the face to gain the final short crack.

A really enjoyable route. The slabby bit below the final crack is easier than it looks and there is bomber gear all the way. A good route if you're breaking into HS too.

I found the moves over the slab where Emma's Temptation takes the crack to be quite hard. Maybe I missed something but it felt considerably harder than the Prow.

Dave you certainly did. The moves below the roof of The Prow are considerably harder.

Loved this route. It isn't covered in OPR so had to trust my own judgment. Would have missed out on my best lead of the day if I hadn't. Avoid Emma's temptation or you'll miss out on the fun bit.

A very good and varied route, suffering a bit from overuse near the bottom.
