A tough start leads to the big corner.
1) 5c, 20m. Surmount the roof, then follow the corner. Traverse right to a pillar. Climb this to the fault-line and belay on the right.
2) 5a, 18m. Gain a ledge above a bulge. Traverse left around the exposed arete to a groove line which is followed to the top.

As described, a very tough start, but do-able and well protected. After that a straightforward VS /HVS first pitch to a good belay. Second pitch was exciting for 5a, all the more so when I snapped a hold off seconding and ended up hanging in space!! Scary top out! Great Value.
