A great route which takes an intricate line up the cliff by combining the best bits of three other routes. Start below the corner that runs down from the right-hand end of the half-height ledge.
1) 5a, 28m. Ascend the corner to the half-height ledge.
2) 5b, 28m. Descend the corner to a break then hand-traverse this, with much interest, for just over 10m until you are forced to head upwards. The wall above is thin and technical at first, but soon eases; good holds lead up and right to a belay.
3) 5b, 30m. Move up to the break-line, shuffle left to where the overlap is narrowest, and move over onto the wall above. Dance rightwards along the lip for a few moves, before heading up and right, aiming for a finishing groove.
