A great climb with some testing moves through the hanging groove. From a block, step right onto the wall and climb to the groove. Pull out left and head up to a roof, step right to a groove then pull up and back left above the bulge (direct is 6b+ and on the left it is 6b). Finish up the easier grooved arete above.

Not sure if I should admit it but this really good - no really!

good climb, sometimes good to take break from trad? got in to it and missed the bolt covering crux (was getting dark honest)

good route but harder and not as good as its neighbour

I thought better than its neighbour, since nicer moves and more consistently sustained.

Three stars. Continued sustained technical climbing with no single move significantly harder than the others and with good rests.
