Start just right of the huge block. Climb a slabby ramp to a small sentry box under a roof. Make some fingery moves across the white wall on the right to a foot-ledge. Balance up to jugs over a flake and then romp to the top, passing three roofs. Either top out or use the lower-off on a slab to the right just below the top.

I think a section of rock has come off this route since the 2005 Rockfax guide and it's now harder. New description is something like: Climb the slabby ramp past a mini roof to a small sentry box under a second roof. Make some fingery moves across the white wall on the right to a foot ledge. Balance up to bomber jugs over a flake and then romp to the top, passing three roofs. Either top out or use the lower-off on a slab to the right just below the top. We pulled off one hold but I wouldn't describe the route as loose - just infrequently climbed. Of course I may just be a complete pussy and have had a hard time on a VS.

Assuming I'm not a complete pussy then it's maybe about E1.
