Pump up your biceps; it's a monster roof crack. Right of Silhouette Arete is a short corner, start at the groove right again.
1) 6a, 18m. Climb steeply up the groove and make serious moves leftwards over a bulge to a rest beneath the roof. Fight across the 3m jamming crack, past a chockstone on the lip, and follow the easy crack above to the fault-line.
2) 4c, 15m. Traverse left onto the prow and continue as for Silhouette Arete to the top.

The roof is superb but reaching it is very serious climbing on cracked black chert
