A blank corner and desperate roof crack give a 70s classic only spoilt by the fact that escape is easy after the first pitch.
1) E3 6b, 12m. Hard bridging moves (good wires) lead up the corner to a belay below the roof. Often climbed on its own.
2) E4 6b, 4m. Stretch into the roof-crack, shuffle towards the lip with your feet on the side wall then levitate the final moves.

First pitch massive sandbag at E3 - hard even for E4. Top pitch is great (best linked into 1 pitch) and just a bit contrived as the start of the roof is a little reach dependent. I'd recommend first pitch of Nectar combined with top pitch of Harvest for the "full outing."
