A Sennen classic which is very photogenic. Start at a right-leading flake right of the arete. Photo on page 423.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the flake to the base of a chimney/crack. Take the precarious chimney/crack via some initially insecure moves to a good ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 7m. Move up to the right-hand side of the overhanging nose above and then undercut left to good holds and pull up to easier ground and the top just above.

Burying yourself in the inviting chimney makes things unnecessarily difficult! Pitch 2 is bold but easy (would be HS 4a on its own).
