The ramp-line just right of the main slab offers some very pleasant climbing on compact rock. Start beneath the left-leaning open groove line at a small tree.
24m. Move up rightwards to a hollow block then move up and traverse left to better holds and gear. Continue up the line to a steep finish on positive holds.

It's worth mentioning that 'continuing up the line' takes you up to a flake system, which is followed up and left to the final steep moves. I only found one gear placemnt between the hollow block and the flake system - it is quite bold.
