A tough route, that is sustained and hard to read, with only just enough gear on the first pitch. Start in a shallow groove, just down and left of the large yellow scar.
1) 5a, 40m. Ascend the groove and move over the bulge with a sense of urgency to eventually reach better holds above with relief. Continue up the groove using the steeper wall on the right to reach a small ledge. Step left, following the groove, before moving right into another groove which leads up to a stance.
2) 4b, 20m. Step left and back into the groove-line and finish up the steep corner-crack to a ledge. Either belay here or carry on up the grass and rock slope.
