Climb the crack in the left-hand wall to its top, then swing right past the arete before making a mighty stretch for the top.

The long traverse is quite reach dependant. I'm 5'10" and could just about traverse with my feet on a ledge, and rest in a few places. A bit taller and it would be easy! ;-P

loved the bottom crack big reach off a stonking handjam to nice moves on finger locks then a thin handjam to reach the break.
First go tried to traverse the break on handjams with feet on the wall but it was really gritty and got pumped out scrabbling around with the weight on my arms.
Second go realised I could reach the foot ledge (I'm 6' 1") and traverse on that with my hands on reasonable holds in the break. Once round the corner a nice mantleshelf move leads to the top (crux of nuke the midges?)
