From the top of the little groove, climb boldly up the grey high-angled slab to the overlap. Pull over the overlap on huge incut pockets to a ledge. Climb the wall above to the top.

Accidentally started up the groove to the L (before traversing back R) which combined with the rest of the route makes it around HVS and more protectable.

The crux move is fairly tricky, and not very protectable. I had the right hand half of a small friend and a small wire jammed in the crack, and didnt trust either of them. Landing if you (and they) pop is into a rock garden. Deserves the E1.

The holds on the lower wall tend to push you towards the VS on the right. Going straight up looked desperate. The top wall is great fun.

Decent gear in the groove should just keep you off the deck if you fluffed the committing move up and back left to reach the overlap. Steady away E0.
