Climb the slabby rib to the roof. Traverse left to a flake (last runners) then swing around the corner and finish up the scary wall on sloping holds. No sneaking off left, though many do!
what a funny pair of routes that follow silly lines, I started up crossover and finished up overhanging wall (cross wall? E1 5b) One powerful move off the good pocket enables a smart mantleshelf onto a ledge then some delicate moves up the slab just left of the rib and another manatleshelf onto the sloping flattie hold. step up right and then back left for a pleasant finish up the nose of the overhang.
I think that the two routes work pretty well, as this one is jam packed full of E2 climbing (OK, the first half is about E1 on its own) while the other is consitent at HVS. Bit of a shame about the escapable finish, otherwise it would be a great route, for variety and thinky, bold climbing. Rather harder than it looks, believe the votes.
Worthwhile route with varied climbing. The bold slab isn't too hard and good cams by your feet for the crux moves. Never E3
