An excellent counter-diagonal that is often overlooked. From the top of Inaccessible Slab monkey leftwards across the roof to the rest on Kelly's block then finish direct with difficulty.

According to the BMC Stanage guide, this is E2 5c - a far more believable grade for the powerful swing across the side of the roof. This is NOT HVS.

Downgraded in the most recent BMC guide to E1 5b, but it's going to make a real battle for people trying it at that grade.
