An excellent, sustained wall-pitch with good but spaced protection. It is at the upper end of the E1 grade. Start 6m left of the house-sized boulder and just right of a narrow corner above the low overhang.</br>Make some hard moves through the low overhang to reach the diagonal break. Step left and climb the wall directly to the right end of a short left-slanting hand-ledge. Move up onto it and from its left end move up the wall past wires to a horizontal finger-crack. Finish direct to a flake belay and scramble off left.

If you like that style of climbing it's lovely. I only really noticed the spaced gear in the middle (at the crux!). There's lots of good stuff at the top. Distinctly remember not wanting it to end....

Thought this easy for the grade
