Just right of the arete, climb a short corner and the blocky continuation crack above. It gives steep climbing for the grade.

I climbed this today, or rather, half of it. My advice: stick to the right hand side of the crack, all the way. I didn't, under bad advice, and went left, wandering onto (roughly) the top of Garden Wall Direct. Wet, bulging, and a bit scary.

Oh... and watch out for the owl which appears to live (or at least roost) in a slot about six feet above the start of the climb. It scared the bloody life out of me.

Seemed Pretty tough for a Diff. Nice little climb this one, shame I missed the owl, think there's a crow living in there now.

Yeah, I think the route goes to the right at the end of the crack up a little groove. I decided to go straight up for a slightly more challenging finish which was nice though unprotected.
