The well-defined rib in the upper wall has good climbing and plenty of exposure. Climb the lower wall past a bulge to a rest below the upper wall. Make difficult moves through a larger bulge above, then climb the arete on its right-hand side.

there seem to be 3 different ways of approaching the crux: directly (very hard), from the left (hard) or from the right (easy).

Despite looking unlikely, going directly past the bolt from the big ledge is perfectly possible at 7b, but does require intelligent use of feet. I think the move to pass the next bolt is harder.

photogenic route. good climbing, maybe not as good as i had hoped but still worth 3 stars. Bit gravely upto beneath the arete,be careful between bolts 2 and 3 quite spaced but ok once you know how. moderately difficult move off the ledge on positive pockets, bit of a bold quest upto the next bolt staring down a fall onto the ledge, just feel airy and exposed. good frightener!
