The huge left-leaning corner is a fantastic line. The initial wall is hard and committing. Start on a block at the left side of a black wall that leads up into the base of the corner.
36m. From the block, step onto the black wall and climb it on diminishing holds to eventually enter the base of the main corner. Climb the excellent corner-line all the way to an easing near the top and finish up the steep black corner on good holds. This pitch can easily be split at a good stance (the 'Armchair') midway up the main corner.

Well worth doing, worth a couple of stars.
