Great climbing up the diagonal line with a sting in the tail.
1) 4c, 10m. Start by traversing out across the shelf to a wide crack, climb this on good holds to a belay at the start of the ramp.
2) 5a, 25m. Move up the ramp, which is generally slabby and often climbed near the arete on the right, until you reach the base of the steeper final corner-crack. Battle your way up this - sustained all the way. Belays are found back from the edge.
